“Mount Fuji is a powerful symbol of a nation, sometimes crystal clear at other times lost in haze and fog, symmetrical and timeless. I felt blessed to have seen it at all, and the feelings of awe, transience and feeling tiny in the enormity of its presence stayed with me and is still informing an ongoing series of work.”
Working in a tradition of an English landscape painter and printmaker, Sadie Tierney explores objects and places where form is linked to emotion and metaphor. Her expressive prints and paintings spring from sketches and drawings made en plein air and are marked by their celebratory use of colour and line.
Sadie Tierney was born in London and grew up in Chichester, UK. She currently lives in Portsmouth with her family. She studied at the Royal College of Art, MA (RCA) Fine Art Printmaking and BA(Hons) Fine Art, at Newcastle University.
