Sarah Long is an artist and writer based in Cork City. She makes drawings, paintings, installations and moving image work that engage with Irish identity and the Mother Ireland figure. The landscape acts as a framework for her practice, allowing the work to reflect on suppressed feminine archetypes and the influence of Irish history and literature on both our cultural memory and our current collective perspective of space. She holds a BA (Hons) in Fine Art from MTU Crawford College of Art & Design.

In 2022, Long graduated from Glasgow School of Art with a First Class Honours in MLitt Art Writing and was awarded the 2022 John Calcutt Prize for Critical Writing. Since 2020, she has managed The Paper, an online artist-led publisher of art writing and criticism.
In 2023, she was awarded the inaugural Critic in Residence at Sirus Arts Centre, Cobh.

Her work is in the OPW collection.
