Sally Bailey is an artist, writer and researcher living in the West Midlands. She successfully completed her practice-led PhD at the Birmingham School of Art, BCU, in November 2021. Her thesis - Locating a Space of Exchange: re-imagining the liminal in contemporary painting practice - reframes the liminal as a conceptual space between painter and painting, process and outcome; examining how the painter can exploit the potentiality of this transformative space to develop experimental practice and push forward current thinking.
