Sarah Muirhead’s Portraits

July 31st, 2013

 

 

 

Sarah Muirhead takes to the streets, using her observations of passersby to create sensitive portraits that convey her subjects’ quirks and idiosyncrasies. Focusing on people on the margins of society — from street punks to the homeless — Muirhead avoids generalizing social observations, instead honing in on the complexity of each subject. Muirhead’s blotchy painting technique resembles the effects of watercolor, though acrylic is her medium of choice. Take a look at some of Sarah Muirhead’s work below.
