Throughout her successful career, Sally Gall has photographed the natural world, using her keen eye for composition to create abstractions of familiar subjects. “I have photographed the beauty and mystery of the natural world – its elemental and sometimes terrifying aspects, its silence, its persistence. I photograph with an ever deepening appreciation for how this place shapes us, even as we shape it with our passage.”
Sally Gall lives and works in New York City. Her work is held in numerous museums and private collections worldwide, notably the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Guggenheim Museum, the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. Sally is the recipient of prestigious fellowships, including two MacDowell Colony Fellowships, a Rockefeller Foundation Bellagio Residency, and a National Endowment for the Arts Visual Artist’s Fellowship.

This work, taken in Split, Croatia, is from the artist’s series, Aerial, which depict colorful laundry hung out to dry. Sally Gall captures dances of floating color, evoking the lyrical abstraction of Miro and Kandinsky. These skyward explorations are untethered from the horizon and from any referential context, to create imaginative compositions that bring to mind sea creatures, celestial bodies and other biomorphic shapes.
