Sara Breinlinger is a London-based painter and collage-maker. After studying fine art at Middlesex Polytechnic, Sara went on to gain a PhD in Psychology and later trained as a psychotherapist. For the past twenty years, Sara has combined her art practice with a career as a therapist. Whilst these two parts of her world are distinct, there is much of her art that explores psychological narrative.
"I think of my [art] as a disorderly attempt to make sense of things and I’m usually aiming in the finished pieces, for a way of creating some order that can contain life’s disorder. So it’s both the creation of order in the chaos, but where a tension remains; where something in the piece still calls for resolution - a disequilibrium which speaks to the complexity, strangeness and messiness of life." - Sara Breinlinger
