Sara Khan questions the seemingly ordinary moments of our day-to-day routines by observing the ‘remarkable’ hidden within them.
Working primarily in watercolour, Sara technique evolves through the layering of translucent colour, bringing out subtle shifts in hue as they emerge within both abstract and representational imagery. Composition figures strongly in her work, as do the suggested narratives which emerge through the process.
Born in Birmingham, England, and raised in Lahore, Pakistan, she now lives and works in Vancouver, Canada. Sara holds a BFA (with honours) from National College of Arts, Lahore. Her works have been featured in several national and international group exhibitions, including solo shows at the Surrey Art Gallery and The Reach Art Gallery Museum, and group shows and Esplanade Arts and Heritage Centre and the Gandhara Art Space, Karachi, Pakistan.
Sara is an enthusiastic teacher, who encourages her students to discover exciting new ground in their practices through playful experimentation and open-mindedness.
