Sally McKay at ‘No Format Gallery’ in London

Sally McKay is exhibiting at the No Format Gallery in Woolwich, London. Her exhibition is entitled ‘Multisensory Experience and Artistic Images of the Moving Human Figure’ and is a study of moving human figures as lines, colours and shadows. The exhibition is in conjunction with the writer Stephen Baycroft, who has written about Sally’s work as part of a larger curated project ‘On Sublimity and Synaesthesia’. McKay’s envisaging of her multisensory perceptions of moving human figures as lines, colours and shadows in her artworks relies both on visual memory-images abstracted from her visual sensations, and on body memory-images abstracted from muscular sensations of her body movements. McKay uses such body memory-images to coordinate her multisensory perceptual making of artworks during collaborative events where moving human figures may experience a loss both of personal subjectivity, and of the distinction of their bodies from the ‘living’ atmospheres of light and sound in which they are immersed. – Stephen Baycroft
