9 MARCH – 29 MARCH 2023

Public Opening: 5 – 7pm 9th March


Sketch Co. Gallery warmly welcomes one of Melbourne’s most exciting emerging artists, Sarah Furzer, with her first solo exhibition, ‘Some Kind of Wonderful’ – a beautiful display of colour and life.

Entering the pandemic after experiencing the loss of a child, being creative and delving into her imagination was the best escape from reality. It was during this time, missing her family, spending time with friends, even a smile from a passing stranger, Sarah realised the need for human connection.

Sarah’s work has evolved from her curiosity for this intrinsic need, that everyone shares, for a human connection. Often finding inspiration from her friends and family, Sarah uses bright, bold and contrasting colours to reflect these impactful relationships that bring her so much joy and wonder.

Dancing alone or embracing each other, Sarah’s body of work shares snapshots of loved memories and hopeful new experiences, encouraging audiences to slow down and enjoy the present moment.

‘Shooting Stars’ from my latest body of work is extra special.. It was influenced by my daughter, moments with her, holding hands and looking to the sky, being imaginative and playful. She is always smiling and bringing the magic.

– Sarah Furzer


Sarah Furzer is an artist and Mother living on the Bellarine Peninsula in Victoria.

Sarah graduated from Monash University with a degree in Bachelor of Design, Visual Communication. Sarah went on to work in a renowned design studio, while nurturing her passion for illustration and image making.

Since becoming a Mother, Sarah has continued to work in design but her passion for art was reignited during her time in lockdown, spending afternoons with her daughter making art. Sarah has started gradually moving away from the screen to focus more on her art practice, and now spends every spare moment in her studio.

Sarah’s artist process usually begins with the blues or old rock’n’roll music filling the studio and playing with paper collage or drawing in her sketchbook. The designs are then transferred to the computer so Sarah can manipulate the colours and composition. Through her playful exploration of the cut up shapes and colours, Sarah reveals a series of intimate moments and shared interactions between these faceless figures.
