Sally Hewett is a British artist, who studied Fine Art at Kent Institute of Art and Design in Canterbury. In 2004, she had her first solo exhibition at the Gallery in the Friars. Since then, she showed her work in numerous international solo and group exhibitions.
Sally’s practice of embroidery and stitching centers around ideas of beauty and ugliness and the conventions which determine our definition of each. Not conventionally beautiful bodies take her eye, but bodies which show their history, which have been altered by experiences, which are decorated with bruises, scars, spots, stretch marks, freckles, pigmentation and veins. Bodies which have the marks of life on them.
