Saren Dobkins has been painting professionally since 1982, while pursuing many interests from photography, literature and personal development. Her distinctive work is painterly, accomplished in her use of colour and underlying geometry; symbolic and intuitive. Integrating the abstraction of African sculpture, the tonal, surface expressionism of modernist art, Saren sensitively explores the complexities of identity, while being responsive to contemporary issues. Her work is imaginative yet recognisably as she explores our inner relationships with the environment, ourselves and others. A contemporary artist who speaks to a deeper aspect of our human experiences in a subtle, yet meaningful way.
