Emily Sall is a painter whose studio practice and work seek to transform the perception of space, references architecture and plays on geometric abstraction. Sall creates visual play between 2D and 3D hardedge paintings, mixed media assemblages, installations and murals. She is interested in creating; shifting, mounting, teetering landscapes of tension, balance, imbalance and harmonious visual relationships. Sall considers herself to be a builder of these ideas. The results can often be surprising and rich, as the work takes on a life of its own, as chance, an accidental play, juxtaposed with intentional design, interacts and moves the work in unexpected ways.
Emily Sall received her BFA in painting from KCAI in 2005 and has shown both locally and nationally. Sall was awarded a Studios Inc. Residency – 3 year -in 2019 and a Charlotte Street Foundations Visual Artist Fellowship in 2007, both in Kansas City, MO. In 2021, Sall was awarded the 2021 Crossroads Hotel Residency. Past commissions include Artboards for Missouri Bank, KC, MO.
