Sally England's work explores the ancient art form of macramé through the use of unconventional scale, material, and composition. Using her hands as tools, her process is intimate and meditative as she interprets different archetypal symbols, patterns, and shapes. The results invite us to reconsider the artistic potential of the age-old technique, creating a new form of macramé for who we are today. She is inspired by the wabi-sabi of nature, the transformative qualities of architecture and interiors, and the bold shapes and flow of 1970's graphic art. For this new installation, England has pushed the boundaries of what defines a basket by using unconventional materials and three-dimensional elements.
