Sally Gall: Aerial
Sally Gall's series Aerial reimagines a commonplace, "found object" - hanging laundry - fantastically depicting vibrant floating fabrics against a brilliant blue sky. In front of, or rather above (Gall shoots her found laundry lines from underneath), Gall's camera, ordinary textiles such as bedding, towels, and clothing take on the forms of sea creatures, amoebas, and flowers. Through these miraculous depictions of intimate objects displayed in a public arena, Gall continues her "photographic investigation of the sensual properties of the natural world."
