Here at SlowCity we are fans of Sally Thurlow and always look out for new work from the Durham Region based artist. Sally has an uncanny ability to see the animate in the inanimate. Her reimagination finds expression in her use of found objects, nature's discards discovered on her beach walks. With the deftest touch of paint or the slightest addition of a piece of wire or rope or a spring she imbues the found with a life force, an energy and a personality.
Sally has a new exhibit opening Sept 10 2016 at the Red Head Gallery in Toronto. Systems Failure centres on four pieces, Expectations I - IV.
Will the great expectations be met? That is up to the viewer.
The opening reception runs 1 - 5 p.m., the exhibit is on until Sept. 24
