Interested in both high and low brow culture, painter Sally Kindberg plays on the tragicomic notion of a society that is both civilised and ridiculous. Her paintings' approach to figuration and abstraction reflects her interest in the contrast between flatness and the illusion of three-dimensionality. Kindberg's humorous approach acts as a portal that enables the viewer to explore other, more unsavoury emotions.
I sat down with Kindberg back in August of 2021 at her studio in London. She shares her journey and what her life was like before becoming a painter. Her ups and downs as an artist and the emotions that come with creating new works. We also discover how her happy bubbly personality plays a significant role to the development and evolution of her paintings.
