In her first solo show in WA, Victorian artist Sally-Ann Rowland created work that uses cliché phrases and popular truisms collected in popular culture – self help books, social media, crime novels, sports commentaries and women’s magazines. Responding to advertising, merchandising and the marketplace, Rowland incorporated the phrases into calendars, tea towels, pencils and mugs which were installed in the gallery and also available to purchase at the gallery store FOUND.

Rowland was a recipient of the prestigious Anne & Gordon Samstag International Art Scholarship in 1999 and has exhibited widely in Australia and the US, including exhibitions in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and most recently in Paris and Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia.
