Sally Saul is married to painter Peter Saul, with whom she shares a wacky aesthetic, and while her work isn’t quite as well known as her husband’s gonzo-satirical canvases, her ceramic sculptures have been attracting increasing attention. Borrowing equally from Folk Art and Surrealism, Saul’s objects depict historical personages (Presidents Eisenhower and Roosevelt), animals (dogs, vultures, beavers) and other figurative subjects that resist easy interpretation (a UFO stuck in a tree). The show represents the artist’s first retrospective.
