Sara Berman

Sara Berman was born in 1975 in the UK. She received a BA in Fashion Design from Central Saint Martins in 1999 after which Berman founded and ran her eponymous fashion brand for 15 years. In 2016 Sara Berman graduated with a MFA in Painting. Berman’s background in fashion influenced her visual arts practice through the use of various textures, layers, mathematical geometry, pattern and objects. The artist is fascinated by the ideas of manufacturing and its relationship to time and place, often exploring concepts of luxury and consumption. In her work Berman examines how people see and define themselves through the relationships with their belongings. In addition, much of Sara Berman’s recent work is inspired by the character of a female Harlequin. Berman has participated in several shows in London, Hong Kong, LA and New York.
