‘Sal’s art lurks somewhere in the shadows; rich with tactile, off-kilter, unapologetic personality. She is able to stride from the page to the projector and from installation to art direction with bold vision and a deftness of touch’
Sal Pittman is an artist and designer based in South East London. Her work is driven principally by a visual response to sound and the search for reframed perspectives. Combining a range of media including film making, animations, slide projectors and photocopiers, she creates abstract narratives utilising altered scale, suffused layering of light, reframes and rhythms, constructing cinematic other-worlds, that explore ways of challenging sensory perceptions.
Her work ranges from the design and production of multi-roomed distinct analogue and digital installations in monochrome and saturated colour to art books and 2D visual works – working with text based imagery, photomontage and collage alongside production design and art direction for film and performance.
For the past 10 years she has been part of an art|sound collective with The Neutrinos. They make work in collaboration with buildings and together have founded the company KlangHaus.
