Born in London in 1956, Sarah Ann Mitchell studied at Central St. Martins, where she graduated in 2003 with a Bachelors' degree in Fine Art. Her practice is concerned with how we, as humans, experience space, the psychology of urban landscape, and the personification of architectural space. Her recent body of work considers the relationship between film stills and memory. She is interested in the idea of the city as text to be read and interpreted, containing many layers of meaning, as well as with the psychology of space in terms of one of projection. Her pieces use images of the mundane to suggest psychological presence. She is influenced by Kevin Lynch’s notion that we don’t live in the city as such but in the picture we have built of it, through experiencing it as simultaneously real, imagined and remembered. This piece, like a film still, shows a street corner at night, illuminated by the inside lights. Print comes matted and framed.
