Sally Bomer is a visual and dance artist who has created an embodied drawing practice after a long career in contemporary dance. Her work explores improvisation, abstraction, beauty, privacy and memory.
Sally holds an MFA in Interdisciplinary Arts from Goddard College and a BA in Art History from Vassar College. She currently lives and teaches in New Hampshire.
My work explores drawing in its intimate relation to movement: the human body in mark making; the long history of drawing in portraying and studying anatomy; the drawing itself animated by environment or manipulation; residual charcoal dust sweeping across a paper to create trails; the disappearance of drawings left on the street; the side-stepping away from self towards empathy that beauty and abstraction can activate; or the structuring tenets of dance improvisation and choreography with which I have a long history and which inform many of the processes of drawing.
