Dr Sally Bailey is a full-time painter/writer/researcher based in Birmingham. She completed her Fine Art MA at the Birmingham School of Art in 2016, and her practice-led PhD in 2021. Bailey’s painting practice acknowledges the traditions and past histories of painting, but is not bound by a formal approach.

I am a painter. I am a painter who does not paint Paintings. I am painter researching messy processes and messier thinking, materialness, performativity, and language through the act of painting, and not painting. I am a painter in/between. I am embedded within the interstices existing and emerging between painting/painter/Painting. I am seeking extra-painterly explanations. And if there are none? Then I am no longer a painter.
