Julie Saul Gallery announces our 11th solo show with Sally G all\, who has been represented by the gallery since 1985. She is known as a classical photographer who takes the natural world as her subject. Unbo und represents a shift in Gall’s visual language in which she combines photographs to create diptychs and triptychs comprised of images that depic t a weightless world without horizons. Gall brings together black and white and color images and a variety of formats which function as a whole to con vey the spirit of the unbound.

Gall has noted that in the natur al world we use the horizon as our reference and now she seeks to create a feeling of weightlessness and flight. Gall explains\, “in Unbound\, clouds\ , airplanes\, and contrails figure prominently. I imagine planes as poetic objects\, heavy metal bodies that appear to float with ease. Clouds contain tons of water yet also appear weightless. I wish to evoke the feeling of f loating ungrounded\, to transport the viewer to a place not bound by gravit y\, and escape the constraint of our usual horizon-oriented experience.” Th e vertical format of the multi-image works were initially inspired by Asian scrolls which she notes have “epic intentions\, the ability to condense im ages of a large world into intimate space\, and a deep reverence for nature .” In earlier bodies of work\, Crawl (2008) and Subterranea ( 2003)\, Gall also eschewed a conventional horizon orientation.

S ally Gall received a BFA in photography from the Rhode Island School of Des ign in 1978. She has taught and lectured extensively in the United States a nd Europe. Public collections include the Guggenheim Museum\, The Whitney M useum\, the Cleveland Museum of Art\, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Ar t\, The Museum of Fine Arts in Houston\, and the Rhode Island School of Des ign\, and the Hood Museum at Dartmouth College.
