Bridge Combination L947
Sally was inspired by the skeletal structure of a disused riverside warehouse to create this design.. She often finds the structure of a building that has been stripped of its outer layers reminiscent of skeletal trees in winter. She loves the negative spaces that create patterns across the surface. Coleman’s works as both a mask and as a stencil. It is a versatile design that can be used in a number of ways. Sally would use parts of it to mask off areas of a print, use the negative spaces to stencil through, or roll it with paint to use as a relief print.
Sally Hirst lives and works in the UK. Her work is about journeys, those she takes, and the journey the art goes on in her studio. The textures, shapes, and structures of the urban environment inform her work. Whilst the results are predominately abstract, they are firmly based on fleeting images and experiences.
