About Sally Blake

Sally Blake

Sally Blake.

Sally Blake’s practice is concerned with visualising the complex interconnections between the human and natural worlds through textile and paper-based media. To reveal these connections, she works with natural processes and materials such as plant dyes in the creation of artworks. She is particularly concerned with cycles of death and renewal and regeneration as well as finding the points where transformations may take place. In her contemporary drawings and textiles, these natural cycles are explored, as well as the consequences of their undoing. She feels deeply about disconnections in human understanding of the natural world, which results in environmental crises.
