The fact an everyday object, such as a flower, can hold significant emotional importance and trigger memories forms the inspiration behind most of Sally Anderson’s work, including her winning entry in this year’s Brett Whiteley Travelling Art Scholarship.
“Everyone has stories attached to things,” the 27-year-old Sydney artist said. “I’m fascinated by the brain and cognition and how we hold emotional weight within certain objects. It’s so interesting to me how objects or landscapes can hold memories and how those memories can change over time; it’s not fixed.”
