Artist Statement

Sadie Wilcox explores the convergence of contemporary art and medicine. Her interdisciplinary approach incorporates multiple vantage points, including the first-hand perspective of the hospital patient, the supporting role of the caregiver, and the clinical analysis proposed by medical professionals.

Sadie's early work included drawing, painting, and printmaking. As her work progressed she expanded her repertoire to include video and multimedia installation, with an emerging interest in dance and movement choreography associated with chronic injury and disability. The impacts of trauma and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) on human physiology, brain function, and memory formation are topics that have permeated her art practice for more than a decade. Her recent series investigates the relationship between the human body, environmental contamination, and landscape.
