Sally Payen

One of the current shows at Wolverhampton Art Gallery is by amazing West Midlands painter, Sally Payen.  These pieces are a continuation of her riot paintings and illustrations, some of her previous riot pieces were shown at TROVE a couple of years ago.   I love Sally's work and her new pieces just show how much her paintings are developing.  Here's the blurb >
In August 2011 the streets of Wolverhampton erupted into violence and disorder.
Sally Payen has been commissioned to respond to the events of last summer through paintings and drawings using CCTV, newspaper images and social media as source material.
Her previous work has touched on the subject of anarchy and unrest and gives a fascinating insight into the way that people behave in crowds.

And here are some pics from the show >
