The Julie Saul Gallery is pleased to announce our sixth solo exhibition of photographs by Sally Gall, Into Darkness. Gall is best known for her sensual photographs of the natural world, as well as photographs of human interactions with nature. For over twenty years she has explored the evocative qualities embodied in the landscape, and its correspondence with human experience.
She has now turned her attention to the territory below ground, focusing on the "twilight zone” between daylight and darkness. She describes how in this eerie lunar light lies the shifting boundary between above and below, outside and inside, civilized and wild, conscious and unconscious.
Over the last two years she has photographically explored the physical characteristics of caverns and grottoes, as well as their mythic and metaphoric meanings. She continues to work with a square format and for the first time she has produced large scale prints which have her characteristic rich tones and deep spaces.
Gall has exhibited widely at galleries and museums throughout the United States- including eight solo exhibitions in the past two years in Boston, Washington DC, Easthampton, New Orleans, San Francisco and Los Angeles. Her work has been collected by many private and public collections including The Cleveland Museum of Art, The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New Orleans Museum of Art, The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, The Brooklyn Art Museum and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.
She was twice a resident at the MacDowell Colony in New Hampshire, and was recently the recipient of a residency at the Rockefeller Foundation’s Study Center in Bellagio, Italy. Gall has taught and lectured widely in the United States and Europe.
