Sally Moore - New Paintings
20 June 2017 - 8 July 2017
Sally Moore was born in Barry, South Wales in 1962. She trained at the Ruskin School of Art, Oxford, and subsequently won a scholarship to study at the British School in Rome. From an early stage in her career Sally’s paintings made an impact, winning awards at the National Eisteddfod, and at the 1996 Discerning Eye Exhibition in London, where William Packer awarded her the critic’s prize. In 2005 she won the Welsh Artist of the Year Award.
Because of her painstakingly detailed style of painting, Sally’s exhibitions are infrequent and always eagerly anticipated. In this exhibition she pieces together the real and the imagined to create a group of surreal paintings full of narrative. Sally says of her work: “Each painting attempts to capture an intense moment. These moments can be pleasurable but sometimes they can be confusing and distressing. Their memories stay with me both in reality and in my dreams”.
Sally’s work is in many public and private collections, including the National Museum & Gallery of Wales, National Library of Wales, Newport Museum and the Contemporary Art Society.
The exhibition is sponsored by Gordon Dadds.
