Sally Fuerst

Born in 1987 - United States

BIOGRAPHY

Sally Fuerst currently lives and works in London. She studied at the Central Saint Martins (Short Course, 2011), at the London Atelier of Representational Art (2009 – 2010), at the Florence Academy of Art, Italy (2007 – 2009), at the Pratt Institute School of Art and Design, New York (2005 – 2007) and at the Parson’s New School Pre-College Programs, New York (2003 – 2004).

Sally Fuerst’s paintings skillfully combine the contemporary with the classical. Having trained at the Parson’s New School and Pratt Institute in New York, Fuerst left the US for Italy in 2005. She spent two years at the Florence Academy of Art studying the figure and acquiring the traditional techniques of drawing and painting the human form.

Inspired by popular culture and appropriating the style of fashion photography, Fuerst meticulously paints images of beautiful and confident women in playful fancy-dress costumes such as Batman and Robin, or posing with props such as rainbow and mickey mouse balloons, a space hopper and a giant inflatable zebra. Fuerst’s approach is cheeky and humorous but the figures are rendered with such skill and diligence that from afar they seem photo-realist. Fuerst quotes artists such as John Currin and John Singer Sargent as influences, and this perfectly illustrates the two strands in her work – the accomplished classical training and the kitsch, Pop sensibility.
