BBC Radio Wales Arts Show | Sarah Jane Brown by Sarah Jane Brown published on 2016-11-18T12:07:54Z Nicola Heywood Thomas interviews Pembrokeshire artist Sarah Jane Brown on the BBC Radio Wales Arts Show, broadcast live on 9th November 2016. Sarah Jane's new exhibition My Peninsularity is currently running at Off The Wall Gallery in Cardiff. The solo exhibition My Peninsularity explores the experience of living in a remote and ancient landscape, drawing upon the themes of isolation and sense of place. In this interview, Sarah Jane talks about how living in Pembrokeshire influences her art, how emotion is key to her painting, and discusses why she has chosen to paint in oils. 'Emotion is key [to my painting] because for me that's what painting's all about. It's, if you like, a visual form of poetry for me. It's my way of expressing myself, my emotions, my thoughts and feelings, and paint is just the medium I choose to do that with. The landscape is almost incidental in that it gives me a framework to hang my emotions on.' This extract is from the BBC Radio Wales Arts Show recorded on 9 November 2016, where Nicola Heywood Thomas previews the best of the Welsh contemporary arts scene in her weekly round-up.
