Sarah Staton

Staton has made us some money. A beautiful digital print, embellished with a silk screen gold coin.  “¥ € £ $ and  ₹; is a repeat motif created from these overlaid global currency symbols. The Esperanto of Currency was created for a recent exhibition of the same name, offering a topical riposte to current debates on global markets, stretched economies and siphoned hyper-wealth.  For Galerie Simpson a golden Bit Coin is gloriously embossed over this net of interlocked nation specific currency.
Staton was born in 1961 in London. After studying at St Martins College of Art, she co-founded Milch Gallery, the first of many collaborative artists  initiatives, that include SupaStore, THE SCHTIP and most recently Pea Proposals. She is Senior Tutor, Sculpture at the Royal College of Art.  Her work is in the permanent collection of the Tate Gallery.
