The Stone Space will re-open slightly earlier than planned.
After being closed for over a month due to refurbishment at Leytonstone Library, we are delighted to re-open with an exhibition by Sally Moore called ‘You Never Can Tell’.
Sally Moore is originally from Wales but has been living and working in East London since the 1980s. She trained at the Ruskin School of Art, Oxford, and subsequently won a scholarship to study at the British School in Rome. Sally’s paintings have won awards at the National Eisteddfod and at the 1996 Discerning Eye Exhibition in London, where William Packer awarded her the critics’ prize. In 2005 she won the Welsh Artist of the Year Award. She has also had her work exhibited at the National Portrait Gallery for the BP Portrait Award in 2014.
Sally’s show at the Stone Space will open on Thursday 10 September and will run until Sunday 4 October 2015. The private view will take place on Friday 11 September 2015 from 6:30 to 8:30pm.
‘Sally’s work displays an interest in,and a deep knowledge of, three visual art traditions, the Narrative, the Surreal and the Symbolic, marrying all together through her use of highly personal imagery. Her paintings are icons of magical realism. A story is being told that cleverly weaves the imagined with the real, the known with the mysterious. In making art she is making sense of the world and we, in viewing the work become part of the process, part of the drama.’ Keith Bayliss, Artist
