Sarah Faulkner

B. 1959

Sarah Faulkner was a founding member of Roar Studios, one of Melbourne’s earliest artist-run-initiative. Conceived as a proverbial roar against the art establishment, Faulkner and her colleagues set about dismantling society’s expectations of image-making. 

In her role, Faulkner liberated painting from the realm of likeness, forging a neo-expressionist style that treats art as a journey. Whether scenes of Brunswick Street Fitzroy or her worldly travels, Faulkner injects life into all her subjects. In her own words, painting “rides on the intuitive, on the way I feel”. 

An esteemed artist, Faulkner is represented at the National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne and continues to be avidly collected.
