Sally Simpson’s work reflects her fascination with the way in which values and meaning assigned to land change over time, according to point of view, culture and situation. Simpson uses unexpected methods to transform natural and man-made materials found at particular sites, creating sculptures that evoke cultural artefacts and museum specimens, and drawings that reflect the fragility of an environment in flux. The purpose of these objects is to record the interaction between humans and the land at a particular point in history.
