What's on at the gallery

Floral Shadow

Artists: Sally Mowbray

Sally Mowbray

Flooded Field (2015)

Floral Shadow is a new group of paintings exploring flower and leaf motifs originating from wallpaper, embroidery and nature.

The work looks for ways to combine the various sensibilities of the motifs using a collage approach to bring the compositions together on the canvas.

The stitches in the textile sources come through in some of the work along with a look of disintegration of antique textiles influencing some of the ideas.

The shadows in the work tend to drift behind the images and serve as a ground and a shallow depth of field. They act as secondary images in the painting and refer to the aspects of flowers that operate on a psychological level.

Much of this work was made during a residency I was very grateful to have at the Whites Creek Cottage Studios in Lilyfield.
