THE ART OF PANGARI
Sally McColl studied art at university and majored in oil painting. In 2005 she completed her Masters in Arts Administration at RMIT. Sally now has a substantial body of work, which continues to evolve over time and has built up a dedicated following who have commissioned her art works. In 2003 she returned from 18 months in London where she exhibited her oil painting, titled 'LUSCIOUS' at the FESTIVAL OF JOY in Greenwich. Later she had a showing at the Deluxe Gallery in Hoxton Square at a 'Pangari Poetry In Motion' event. In early 2004 she held her first successful solo exibition at the Access Gallery, in Meeniyan, Gippsland and is now working on a second series inspired by her participation in the Wukidi reconciliation ceremony that was held in Darwin in 2003 between her family, the McColl's and the Yolngu (aboriginal) family, the Wirrpanda's who come from remote North East Arnhem Land and the homeland community of Dhuruputjpi.
Her body of work includes the more figurative piece titled, 'DREAM CATCHERS', which has since become the Pangari logo and is synonymous with Pangari's corporate branding image. The direction of her work and emphasis developed organically into an exploration of flowers, reflecting her upbringing surrounded by vibrant rambling country gardens. The oversized blooms have a sculptural quality which burst out of the frame into the viewers space. These images can be described as more clean and sculptural rather than feminine and whimsical despite their subject matter.
