Sally Williams describes herself as a textile
and digital artist/maker who began her studies in Art and Design
at Loughborough College of Art. She also studied New Technology
for Designer Makers and later gained her BA (Hons) in Visual
Art at the University of Salford in 2002.
Her current work uncovers the stunning microscopic landscapes
that are unseen by the naked eye, exploring the beautiful minute
forms of the weft and weave of the sculptural fibre pieces to
make and create delicate textural imagery and environments.
Of herself and her work, Sally says:
“I use a marriage of handmade sculptural
textiles and various ‘New technologies’, such as 3D virtual
software, scanning electron microscopes, laser cutting and
etching and digital photography to create my work.
Science and ‘New Technology’ constantly inform my work on
both a technical and creative level”.
She took part in a Sculptural Textiles/Digital
web design Workshop – ‘Desire Lines’ for Creative Partnerships
in 2002, and at UMIST’s Research at the Crystals and Colloid
Department from 2003-2004.
He has exhibited at the Triangle in Manchester, held a solo
show in Blackburn in early 2004, as well as in Barcelona, Nottingham
and St Helens. In 2005 she is holding a Solo Show in Denmark
as well as taking part in a Group Show in Finland.
