London based Fine Artist producing contemporary figurative oil paintings, with an emphasis on emotional conflict and expression.

Bio

Working primarily with oil paint on canvas Sal’s fascination with painting focuses on our relationship with representation; particularly with regard to human expression and communication. Her emotionally charged paintings, portraying, primarily, fictional subjects, are an attempt to capture the action of expression out of context whilst transforming the stereotypical portrait. Using subjects that she has sourced from cinema, the media and her own photography she creates works that explore human reaction and empathy on a personal level. Her work investigates our love of the dramatic, focusing on scenes of questioning, love, betrayal, and power-play; along with titles originating from dialogue, they invite the viewer to share and empathise with this inner world of familiar strangers.
The painted surface draws attention to the process of painting and to the artist’s choices in transforming the photographic source image.
​​
Sal has a BA Hons in Fine Art and a PGCE in Art & Design, she lives and works in London.
In 2014 she was selected for the Discerning eye, annual open exhibition at the Mall galleries, and in 2015 selected for the Society of Women artists annual open exhibition. She was elected an associate member of the national Society of Painters, Sculptors and Print makers in 2016 and exhibited in their annual shows 2016 and 2017. She is a selected member of Artcan and Art Society Soho arts collectives, exhibiting with both in group shows and is a member of British Women Artists and the Scottish Society of Artists.
In 2016 she was long-listed for the Jackson’s Open Art prize, winning the interim oil painting prize.
Works are held in private collections in the UK and Internationally.
