Sally Cole is a painter and printmaker with a studio in Hastings Country Park. She works outside in the landscape, in Sussex, Pembrokeshire and West Coast New Zealand.
“The experience of viewing Sally Cole’s work is one of the paintings coming ‘continually upon the spirit with a fine suddenness’. • Its source is her engagement with her subject matter, which is fearless and intense. She will follow wild ponies along their trackless paths; she will sit beneath hedges; pick up branches or feathers to make marks with, sit on a cliff top working while the weather engulfs the light beyond the point when it’s too dark to see, or carry the imagery she absorbs back to the house, or even to her studio in Hastings where she continues working.” Simone Witney
