Sarah Leanne Trappe is moving to Merseyside soon from the North East and says
“I adore the work of many ‘romantics’ and take influence from them along with the work of artists from varying genres however, Rothko, Pollock, the above mentioned ‘contemporary’ artists, Kahlo and a huge list of film creators, writers, musicians, photographers. So yes I take areas of romanticism but I won’t bind myself entirely to it.
I often use modern media such as film and photography to capture images for my work, something not used in the 18th century. ”
