Sarah's work has always been character driven and

combines traditional portraiture with narrative. 'Dolby’s characters are immediately dazzling in their power and beauty, but on closer inspection reveal hands rubbed raw, flushed complexions and above all else, unnerving expressions. Set against stark, yet luminous backgrounds, the focus of each work is firmly on the character, and the depth and complexity of emotions barely contained behind their gaze. [Orex Gallery text]
