Sally’s work usually takes the form of abstraction and her process is comparable to that of problem-solving. Sally uses intuitive colour-play and suggestive architectural motifs within abstracted landscapes to explore emotional states, domestic experience, language, memory and notions of human behavior. Her work is predominantly process driven, highly expressive and is loaded with references to personally significant subject matter; most of which is almost always obscured. Deliberate reference to binaries such as fact/faction, inside/outside, remembering/forgetting are suggestive of language and thought, presence and absence.
