Sally Stafford’s spiritual landscapes not only evoke the romanticism of the past, but also excites our hunger for contemporary painting with her alchemy of media; her capturing floral and pastoral forms in an instantaneous manner in brushstrokes that seem to become quick, subtle, twisted and elegant; and the metaphysical aura she creates through constantly shifting perspectives.
"Sally’s paintings reflect the spirituality of the contemplative moment when immersed in the sheer brilliance of the natural landscape. There are strong impressionist echoes, yet there is an energy and spiritual balance that is achieved through experimentation of colour, space, line and texture.'Sam Swain
