I’m an artist living and working in London. Through my paintings I try to engage with a feeling of openness and temporal change, constant transition and fluidity. What we feel affects how we see; with all the subtle shifts and variations of light and colour, our experience of the present is as temporal as nature – one mirrors the other.
Selected paintings in this interview are exhibited as part of Sorrell’s first major solo exhibition, Long Tide at Parafin, 14 February – 28 March 2020. 18 Woodstock St, Mayfair, London W1C 2AL.
What makes you stop and observe?
How much are we not seeing?
When is it overwhelming?
Do your titles plant seeds of your painting’s origin?
What do you give to your paintings?
How have your painting practice morphed and changed?
What have you learnt from painting this way?
Where have your eyes taken you?
How do you capture the drama of sight?
Do your paintings change when you’re away from home?
