Statement

Drawing grounds me

I draw in response to activity, focussing on live performance. Dancers are my stimulus, I draw while they rehearse and perform, transcribing motion and stillness, balance and falling, solitude and chaos, into a series of marks on paper. The drawings are in the present, an immediate and direct reaction to the rhythmic movement.

The drawings inform the paintings, etchings and life size wire sculpture, created in my studio while the memory of the movement is still strong.

“Sally works with great sensitivity, the drawings she produces are acute observations and her flair often suggests hidden meanings to scenes and moments which are otherwise invisible. Her own deep understanding of artistic process and practice bring so much to any rehearsal room."
