Everything Begins

Sarah Duncan

Sarah Duncan is an artist and printmaker who lives and works in Bristol. Sarah studied Textile Design in West Surrey College of Art and Design, and more recently passed her Masters degree with Distinction in Print at UWE in Bristol. 

Throughout history the night sky has been a screen for our projected dreams. Sarah's work seeks to reflect this screen, and to find others to illuminate.  Sarah is influenced by forms and light invisible to the naked eye, seeking beauty in the realms of science, astronomy and microscopy.  Optical technology allows us to glimpse the unseeable. The artist's work reflect on these technological revelations, and try to grasp what would be unknowable without them.

Sarah's printmaking revels in time and speed, abstracted by telescopes peering into the deep past or microscopes delving into hidden worlds. 

In 2014, as part of her Professional Practice for the Multi-Disciplinary Printmaking MA at UWE, Sarah travelled to Kitt Peak National Observatory, home to the largest collection of telescopes in the world. Located 7000 ft elevation above Arizona’s Sonoran Desert in the Tohono O’Odham reserve, Kitt Peak houses 25 optical and 2 radio telescopes. It is a working observatory where astronomers sleep during the day and work at night.

During her time there, Sarah spent the nights photographing and drawing the stars, galaxies, nebulas and planets.  Attaching her SLR to the telescope she was able to take pictures down it, capturing images as far as 65 million light years away. 

 All of Sarah's prints are hand printed using traditional printing methods including etching, lithography and screeprinting
