Sarah Grace was born in 1990 in KwaZulu-Natal and homeschooled by artist parents Janine & George Holloway. She worked part-time for diverse artists from a young age, including Jane du Rand, Richard Hart, Roger Jardine, Andries Botha, Pascale Chandler & Neil Coppen.
Sarah studied dance through Cecchetti Society of Classical Ballet for 15 years & classical flute and in 2011 decided to leave these studies to pursue a business venture whilst continuing to make art in her spare time.
Would this cosmic egg be our new beginning?
With the death of language, religious foundation and universal expertise in the sciences, what new stories would we tell? It’s human nature to create myths that explain our existence and weave the fabric of culture. Would we tell the same prehistoric stories that so many before us have believed in isolation?
By way of the organic forms; shapes and clusters [that constitute this body of work], Sarah Grace has explored the human tendency to find shared meaning in the artifices we create – in order to support the myths or beliefs that bind us together.
Her choice of medium, technique, objects and subject matter is inspired by mythological symbolism and the study of the ecological universe.
Her works celebrate the beauty of nature at the micro- and macroscopic levels, embracing the connection between real and imaginary life.
