Sally West is a contemporary Australian artist whose work is widely coveted.
Her application of the paint is incredibly thick which creates an interesting textural surface. She works with a muted palette and bold application of the paint which often spills over the edge of the canvas. Sally West’s most recent body of work from her beach series was painted inspired by and often created at various Australian beaches including Terrigal, Avoca, Freshwater, Manly, Coogee, Maroubra, Bondi, Camp Cove, Blueys, Lizzie & North Curl Curl (NSW). KAB Gallery represents Sally West and her series of Beach & Snow Paintings are available at KAB Gallery Terrigal & KAB Gallery Sydney MORE INFORMATION
