Sally de Courcy

Artist Biography

 

Sally de Courcy qualified in 2016 from the University of Creative Arts, Farnham with a first class honours degree, scholarship and masters with distinction in Fine Art. She is interested in repetition of cast objects and works in different mediums including bronze. The objects are re-assembled to reveal a narrative.

 

Her medical experience of working with refugees is reflected in her work, which often stands for those who are treated as less than human. The philosophical reasons for repetition of violence through history explored by Butler and Zizek have influenced her, together with artists Doris Salcedo, Ai Weiwei and Mona Hatoum who transcend their autobiographical experiences to comment on thematic human issues. Recently her work concerns humanitarian aspects of the COVID19 pandemic.

 

Sally is a member of IAVA, International Association of Visual Artists and Continuum. She has had many publications most recently in Flux Review Magazine and  has won awards. She has exhibited throughout the UK and  internationally most recently with Transcultural Exchange,Boston and The Borders Exhibition in the Contemorary Artspace, Palazzo Albrizzi- Capello, Venice.
