To tie in with Duckett and Jeffreys 4th birthday, Sally Taylor has returned with “Confused Heads”
In 2010 Duckett and Jeffreys launched with its inaugural show ‘Mouths and Triangles’, by Sally Taylor with the aim of showing contemporary art that would both excite and challenge, the kind of work that was rarely seen in a Market Town or rural location.
Owned and curated by artists and partners Ian and Stef Mitchell, Duckett and Jeffreys quickly has established itself as a leading Northern contemporary gallery providing a much needed space for artists to show, sell and reflect on their work by exhibiting a solo show.
Four years later Duckett and Jeffreys has developed into a nomadic, multi space gallery with the aim of reaching an even wider audience, taking Duckett and Jeffreys into towns, cities and rural locations.
Since her first show at Duckett and Jeffreys Sally has gone form strength to strength, being selected for the third time for the Jerwood Drawing Prize; representing Britain in ‘Afternoon Tea’, with WW Gallery at the 54th Venice Biennale; having a solo show ‘Marks and Mouths’ at MIMA, Middlesbrough and being included in Drawing Paper 6. Co-curated with Gavin Delahunty, Tate Liverpool.
In “Confused Heads” Sally is exhibiting recent work where she has introduced gaffer tape into her drawing. Older work is also available.
Sally’s considered and yet intuitive approach to mark making results in a highly personal visual language which communicates directly with the viewer. Her use of her body within these drawings is also apparent, bridging the imagination and resultant image, with gestural mark making, acting as a reminder of the importance of physicality in the daily act of communication.
Confused Heads runs until Mon 1st April - Throughout this time we will be open daily 11am to 6pm but are more than happy to do evening viewings by appointment
