Artist Statement

Exploring notions of vision and the optical experience of space, Sally Tape works with Architectural forms that articulate movement and a shift in optics.  Artworks are developed using form (shape), structure (architecture) and movement (people).  Tape’s practice examines how this three-way relationship alters the human optical depth of field.  Utilizing various mediums but always beginning with a drawing, architectural forms are reduced into an abstract composition becoming less about form and shape and more about movement and the physical experience of a space.
