Sally Kindberg

Interested in both high and low brow culture, Kindberg play on the notion of the tragicomic in a society that is both civilized and ridiculous. Using a humorous approach acting as a portal that enables us to explore other, more unsavoury emotions. Her paintings stay predominantly figurative but where the figurative, which is the starting point, moves towards abstraction. Kindberg is particularly interested in the contrast between flatness verses the illusion of three-dimensionality. Different forms of language, as such, stylized form, use of colour, photorealism, or mark making resolves the picture planes. She is looking for a composition which is often a double take, highlighting the overlooked every day in both a whimsical and seductive way.
