Julie Saul Gallery is pleased to announce an exhibition of new photographs by Sally Gall. Entitled Between Worlds, the show contains works made by Gall during a six-week sojourn at an artist's colony called Moonhole on the island of Bequia, in St. Vincent, the Grenadines. The colony consists of small stone houses, very isolated from each other. Any traces of past inhabitation have a sense of use, abandonment and reuse. The island is small and scrubby, and is surrounded by sea and many other small islands.
The title of the show is intended to express the separation for the world she felt there, and the sense of using her photographs of the external world to represent her internal state of mind, and emotional response to her surroundings. Gall shared her small house with her companion, a writer, and the photographs move back and forth between an intimate record of these simple surroundings, and images of beaches and skies. In a departure from her purely landscape work, many of the photographs are still life and figurative. The sense of focus moves in and out as if looking up from a book and looking into deep space.
This is Sally Gall's fourth solo show at the gallery, and the first since the publication of her monograph Water's Edge. She has recently had solo exhibitions at the University of California at Long Beach and the Southeast Museum of Photography in Daytona. Her work is included in numerous public and corporate collections including The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, The Hood Museum at Dartmouth College, New Hampshire, The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, The Tampa Museum of Art, Dow Jones, and Reader's Digest.
A concurrent exhibition of early prints by Sally Gall will be featured at Kathy Kennedy/Photo Works, 119 West 23rd St., Suite 1006 April 15 - May 30, 1998
