 Sarrita's Lightning paintings are a painted memory of the electrical storms in the tropical climate of Darwin where she spent her youth.  The lightning would crack across the entire sky, creating lines not dissimilar to cracked earth, and with the lightning came the winds, that in their fury whipped up all the dust, rain, heat and magnetic energy into a maelstrom in the air.

Sarrita would discover new patterns and colours every time she witnessed these natural light shows.

Sarrita paints the Lightning series in two main ways:  she either encapsulates the intensity of the storm and the driving rain to the point where it is seemingly audible or contrarily, she points out the subtle beauty within the storm and the way in which the elements gracefully twist and turn between the dramatic lighting strikes.
