About Sarahjhoskins

Biography Sarah Hoskins, was born in Kent and grew up in Devon, South West England. In 1996 she graduated from Wimbledon School of Art, then completed a Post Graduate diploma at the Cyprus College of Art in 2002. Since then she has exhibited throughout the UK, and internationally. In 2010 she returned to Cyprus initially as a resident artist at the Cyprus College of Art, and was made their Head of Foundation until December 2012. Since returning to this cold country in 2013, she has mostly been up in her attic, making paintings. Artist Statement There are times in my studio, say, when I am painting a sloppy turquoise-green onto a scruffy pink-grey, and the experience is honestly better than eating the most delicious food.

Sorry about the horrible ads!

Hi,

I have decided to stop paying for this blog, as I already have a website with a blog facility:

www.sarahhoskins.co.uk

Unfortunately that means you are likely to get some adverts with this post which might be a little off-putting to say the least, sorry!

I will not take this site down, and I may use it occasionally in the future. It will serve as an archive of work leading up to this point.

Thank you for following me, and I hope you will continue to watch my progress through my website.

The Protocols of the New Art College.

Stephen Park

When I get round to writing my book The Protocols Of The New Art College, the first rule will be that you don’t talk to people who are working. You wouldn’t talk to someone while they were writing, dancing or composing music, why would anyone talk to anyone who is painting or drawing? Talk is sabotage. Any artists in any discipline who thinks they can do something else while they are doing whatever they think they are doing, is on a hiding to nothing.  In communal spaces where people work it is important that an atmosphere of relaxed concentration is achieved.  Responsibility for maintaining this must be shared rather than falling solely upon teachers. It can feel slightly oppressive if teachers are reminding people to be quiet.
