Yasmin Sartin is a Fine Art undergraduate student studying at Norwich University of the Arts. Sartin’s work is primarily concerned with identity. Using mainly oil paint, she seeks to explore human form and portraiture. She aims to incorporate a mixture of psychological and technological influences into her work. By working from distorted digital images, Sartin uses a semi-realist painting style to extend and reconstruct preconceptions of identity. This style is part of the process of her painting as it is not only a physical representation but also stands as a metaphor for slowing down time for contemplation. In other words, a greater potential for manipulation of the subject is gained through the gradual application of the medium. The use of the self-portrait in her current work is fundamental to her understanding of notions of the self.
