Sarah Ettlinger is a British artist who lives and works in Athens, Greece, since 1991. She is known for her oil paintings, although she has worked in a variety of different fields in Art and Design.
Sarah Ettlinger creates photo-realistic, expressionistic, and abstract work, while her fascination consistently lies in the undercurrent- what is beneath the surface layer, skin, stereotype or preconception. She focuses on a subject and delves beyond the expected image. The child figures in her current paintings, invoke the mischief and awkwardness of childhood and revere its beauty and spontaneity. As though exposing a lost paradise, her painting pinpoints the gaze of the alienated adult, who no mater how intensely he looks, cannot see what is in his view, unable to penetrate into the almost mystic world of a lost innocence.
