Sally Loughridge is a UK based British artist. Trained in Fine Art at
the Ruskin School of Drawing - Oxford University, Theatre Design at Croydon College and Printmaking at Morley College, Sally worked for over twenty years as a freelance costume designer for the BBC,
Channel 4 and other independent television, film and theatre companies. As wardrobe assistant for the former London Contemporary Dance Theatre and prop-maker for the Ballet Rambert, Sally
was able to produce a series of sketches of dancers in rehearsal, as well as studies of The Royal Ballet and English National Ballet rehearsing with Nureyev.
These provided the foundations for a body of drawings, paintings and prints on the theme of dance and movement.
The influence of theatre is evident in Sally's portrayal
of human form, particularly the relationship between figure and setting, in which
the narrative is expressed through descriptive, bold contours, overlapping lines and accentuated tonal contrasts. This pervading sense of drama can also be seen in the artist's depiction of the
natural landscape, inspired by her travels.
Sally has exhibited her work extensively since 2009 in central London
galleries, including The Royal Academy, Mall Galleries, Bankside, Menier and Dulwich Picture Gallery.
Sally Loughridge is an associate member of the Society of
Graphic Fine Art.
