Sally Eland

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.

More of Sally’s work can be found on her blog.
