"The detours I took along the way have all played a role in returning me to my love of the landscape."
Through her meticulously rendered landscapes, Langdon invites the viewer to engage with the setting as a whole, framing each mountain, each subject almost as if it were a portrait, or the protagonist in a novel.
Inspired by the green terraces and craters changing in the light, the views of the dormant volcanic forms differing from one location in the city to the next are all aspects of the landscape that drive Langdon's work. A graceful dance of shadow and light.
"My work is not just a replication of the landscape, but a response to the beauty I see there."
Working primarily in acrylic on board, canvas and paper, Langdon's work can be found in private collections throughout New Zealand and overseas.
Sara Langdon has been represented by Parnell Gallery since 2013.
