About

Sally Burton

The acclaimed contemporary artist and painter lives in Nelson Tasman region of New Zealand. 

Sally’s paintings question concepts of space and dimension.

In her latest series, circular forms evolve and dissolve in hybrid surfaces somewhere between fluid and solid; often barely held by gravity.

The eternal return of the circle establishes narratives of containment, making connections with the female presence to the land and reaffirms the interconnectedness of the natural world. The mix of materials on tapa cloth and geotextile supports includes volcanic ash and gold leaf, with multi layered metallic pigments.

Since graduating from Ilam, Canterbury University School of Fine Arts, Sally has painted and exhibited. She has work in Public and Museum collections in New Zealand and private and corporate collections in Australia, North America , Europe and Asia. acclaimed contemporary artist and painter is located in Nelson, New Zealand.
Sally works in an advisory role with the annual World of Wearable Art awards and show.
