Sally Taylor presented a slide show of recent works on paper. The drawings explore portraiture through child-like impressions of a 'mouth' or 'head / neck' motif.
'The drawings affirm a desire to understand more about human relationships, specifically my own interaction with others. They are equally about forming a balance between formal concerns in relation to the communication of emotional resonance. Recent work has developed into an investigation of the dynamics of social groups – particularly how hierarchies emerge, how roles are assumed and behaviours are managed. The work aims to investigate these processes that appear to be rooted simultaneously in latent predispositions; revealing ‘unknown’ and unpredictable subjective experiences. Recurring motifs of triangles and ‘smiling mouths’ aim to explore Louise Bourgeois’ statement ‘triangles mean danger’ alongside social constructs surrounding the unsaid and nonverbal interaction.'
