Sarah Rapson studied at Hornsey College of Art in London and L'Ecole nationale supérieure des arts Decoratifs in Paris. From 1989-1990, she was selected to participate in the Whitney Museum Independent Studio Program in New York.

Currently, she lives and works in a rope maker's terraced brick cottage, in Bridport, Dorset, England. Her photographs taken in London along with new work made in Dorset from used materials-including pallet wood, ash, stripped painting stretchers, salvaged house paint and newspapers-have all recently been shown alongside a series of projects at Salon Nacional in Cali, Colombia; T12 Space in London; Galerie Zürcher in Paris; and Zürcher Studio, La MaMa Galeria, and Cheim & Read in New York. This talk is sponsored by the Hoffberger School of Painting.
