Sally Chinea

My artistic practice explores boundaries, in particular distinctions between craft, fine art and gender stereotyping. My work challenges and subverts activities, traditionally associated with women and domesticity.I usually create subtle, yet playful interventions that may be initially overlooked or misread, highlighting the understated, quite virtues and philosophies of craft

I manipulate and re-contextualize a wide variety of mundane, found and discarded materials to create a dichotomy between something which which is worthless and something that is valued; value, created by the investment of manual labour, care, consideration and time. More recently I have found a love for teaching others many of the skills I have acquired and run a wide variety of workshops and community art projects.
