My paintings are built up in layers and transparent glazes are applied to allow light to radiate from within the painting. The process of scraping and wiping down the paint surface, repainting and the subsequent scarring of the canvas becomes a metaphor for life. I feel that my future work is on the verge of becoming neither figurative nor abstract. I am becoming more concerned with the texture of the oil paint on the canvas.

“Lucy Holden, contemporary art critic in New York, once described Sally Trueman’s paintings “…as an alluring journey into the artist’s forbidden psychic.”
