The Dark and the Light
Sally uses the human form to explore the relationship and connections between self, other, place and mortality. The pieces explore the body as a landscape and draws additional imagery from vanitas paintings..
Found and hand painted cloth is layered, distorted and distressed to provide a working surface. Machine and hand stitch is used to support, embellish and provide structure. The resulting textiles have a rich, decorative and strong physical presence.
