Opening on Saturday 9 September 2023 from 6pm in the presence of the artist
Galerie de l’Ancienne Poste is pleased to present the second solo exhibition of the famous Irish artist Sara Flynn, whose every London exhibition is quite an event.
The artist now represented in France by Galerie de l’Ancienne Poste offers a new corpus of thirty works specially created for the exhibition.
Sara Flynn was born in Cork, Ireland in 1971, and trained in the Crawford College of Art & Design, Cork City, Ireland. While she was destined for painting, she discovered from her first year of training ceramics which quickly became her favorite material. She graduated in Ceramic Design in 1998.
Having begun her career in 1999 producing small-scale functional pots, as her skill has increased she has moved entirely into making one-off Sculptural Decorative Vessels.
She is represented in London by Erskine, Hall & Coe, Mayfair, London, England and Galerie de l’Ancienne Poste in France.
Sara Flynn’s work is displayed in numerous private and public international collections, including The Victoria & Albert Museum London, England; The Devonshire Collection at Chatsworth House, England; The National Museum of Ireland; The Gardiner Museum, Toronto, Canada; The Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge, England, U.K., The Art Institute of Chicago, U.S.A. and The Hepworth Gallery, England.
She was shortlisted for the inaugural edition of the Loewe Foundation Craft Prize in 2017. She has been a member of the Experts Panel for the Loewe Foundation Craft Prize each year since 2018 and will be on the Panel again in 2024.
