About

What makes Sally West’s original oil paintings so recognizable is the combination of texture, abstraction and calming colors. The movement of the paint strokes on canvas is reminiscent of a light breeze or waves. Each painting is completed in one day, with the date present in the title. West's pieces take at least 8 weeks to completely dry. Once dry the thick paint takes on an almost sculptural effect. Overall, West’s color palette is uniquely her own and it conveys a very specific feeling of comfort associated with familiarity and softness.

This unique oil painting measures 16-inches high and 20-inches wide. It is wired and ready to hang. It is signed by the artist on the front lower right corner as well as the back. The sides of this artwork are painted and it does not require framing. Affordable Continental U.S. and International shipping are available. This artwork comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from the gallery.

Sally West was born in West Wyalong, Central New South Wales. West grew up on a farm and as a teenager moved to Eastern Sydney for school. Throughout her life, she has traveled through and lived in both Europe and South East Asia to gain inspiration for her artwork. Although her international journeys have acted as an influence on her style, the subjects of her paintings are very close to home. The subjects of all of her paintings exist in an infinite timeline but only in the location of Eastern Australia.

Since West’s first breakthrough solo exhibition in New York in 2011, her artworks have become highly sought after internationally. She has won and placed as a finalist in numerous worldwide art competitions and juried exhibitions throughout her courier. Within Australia itself, West has already established herself as a central figure of the New South Wales and coastal art scene. Her artworks are exhibited with influential galleries across Australia as well as in New York.

Sally West

Sally West was born in West Wyalong, Central New South Wales. West grew up on a farm and as a teenager moved to Eastern Sydney. Throughout her life she has traveled across and lived in both Europe and South East Asia to gain inspiration for her paintings. Although her international journeys influential on her style, the subjects of her paintings remain very close to home.

What makes West’s paintings so distinct is the combination of texture, abstraction and calming colors. The movement of the paint strokes on canvas is reminiscent of a light breeze or waves. This is communicated even more clearly with pastels and delicate shades of color in her artworks’ backgrounds. Within her artworks’ foregrounds, she sometimes opts for hints of brighter colors to add accents or simply continues with the same color palette to maintain the ethereal feeling. Overall, West’s color palette is very uniquely her own and conveys a very specific feeling of comfort associated with vague familiarity.

Since West’s first breakthrough solo exhibition in New York in 2011, her artworks have become highly sought after internationally. She has won and placed as a finalist in numerous worldwide art competitions and juried exhibitions throughout her courier.
