This exhibition will celebrate a series of works created by the artist over the past five years. Much of the work was inspired by a six week residency in Gros Morne National Park, Newfoundland, in 2008. Other pieces emerged from Sally’s own back yard, the shoreline of Lake Ontario near Bond Head. Time worn driftwood, the textured surface of ancient rocks, and porcelain shards from shattered china; each fuel her creative vision. These objects have been carefully collected and studied by the artist during her shoreline wanderings. Both natural and man-made, they have been transformed by time and the elements. Sally reclaims these objects, reinterprets and reshapes them, imbuing them with new meaning while honouring their origins and history.
NB: This show will be at The Visual Art Centre of Clarington, 143 Simpson Ave., Bowmanville, ON, April 21 to May 19, then to The Red Head Gallery, 401 Richmond St West, Toronto. May 22 to June 15.
