Original Screenprints

Sally McGill

“The main inspiration for my work comes from landscape, particularly when seen from the air so that the world becomes flat pattern. I am interested that you can often see the history of the land – tracks of former roads cutting across fields, standing stones, clearings etc.

I like to organise shapes and patterns, starting paintings in a loose way, incorporating drips and accidental marks, working in layers and using a fairly limited palette.

I have always worked on paper as well as canvas and have tried different printing methods including etching and lithography, but I am now concentrating on screenprinting as it most suits the way I work.”

Sally has exhibited regularly since 1998, showing in and around London and also in France and Switzerland, both in solo and group shows.

She has been working with Artizan Editions since 2004 and has had prints shown at the Royal Academy Summer exhibition (2004), The Hunting Prizes (2005), Originals 2006 where she was awarded the Julian Trevelyan Memorial Prize that year and in 2008, and at The Chelsea Arts Club.
