Apart from occasional forays into silicone, Irish sculptor Sallyanne Morgan works with concrete and ferrous cement. She graduated from Colaiste, Conghaile Dublin, in 1996.
Sallyanne’s work is primarily figurative and conceptual, using either direct cement method with wire armature and ferrous materials or casting from clay. Engraved symbols; text and pigmented cement form part of her narrative on the exploration into the human condition.
Her figures animate persona and attitude; the intricate balance between outward behavior and the internal narratives we all share. She makes a visual representation Of the inner psyche with all its complexities.
She has worked as a government sponsored “Artist in the community” in Ireland, taught ceramics to young adults in Phnom Penh and facilitated a cement workshop in KCAC, Kathmandu.
Having lived in countries as diverse as Athens, London, Phnom Penh and Oslo, Sallyanne has lived in Malta for nearly seven years and returns to Ireland July 2019.
