Sally Ward works with a wide variety of materials in two and three dimensions. She often includes found objects as they have associated memories for me and can evoke a sensation of a time and place.
“I am inspired by the work and ethos of the Arte Povera artists as I admire their unconventional approaches to materials and techniques. I appreciate the way their art moves away from long accepted methods such as casting or carving with traditional material such as bronze or marble to their use of common place and every day materials. I explore, experiment and recycle materials until they evoke a strong response within me. These initial pieces may simply be fragments but gradually they build into a complete work”
