Project Description

Sally Burnett

Sally’s Corvus Nero Collection is inspired by the landscape around her studio in Staffordshire: “The raucous call of crows flying overhead echo across the hardened furrows of the fields below; breath visible as I survey the frozen landscape. The sense of stillness, overwhelming.” The contrast of bleached wood and black matt acrylic, captures this moment in time. The textured bands of grain mimic the furrows of the fields, frozen and yet flowing across the landscape. The thrill and sometimes frustration of working with a living material that moves and twists keeps Sally moving forward to see how far she can push the medium and what visual impact she can achieve.
