Sally Taylor’s drawings affirm a desire to understand more about human relationships and interactions. The ‘Heads’ are animated and sculptural, located with pen, tape and collage on found surfaces and books. Recurring motifs of triangles and ‘smiling mouths’ allude to a statement in regards to the work of Louise Bourgeois ‘triangles mean danger’ alongside social constructs surrounding the unsaid and non-verbal interaction.
