    A Pair of Blue Tits is an original drawing by Sally Ann Johns. The vibrant blues are offset by the opulent gold leaf background.

    Sally-Ann Johns’ striking work often depicts everyday birds and animals, sometimes portraits, displayed in a unique and exciting way. Set into a gold lined box, they conjure images of ancient religious icons tempting the viewer to witness them in a new light. Artist Sally Ann Johns comments ‘The mysterious iconography of the Catholic and Apostolic Church has been inspiring my work for many years. Each piece of work consists of one image, isolated and surrounded in golden leaf. Then the work is displayed in its own beautifully hand-crafted case, a simple drawing becomes a precious artifact. My drawings are less to do with a realistic representation or portrait, than with creating a visual prayer. I allow each image to stand alone, surrounded by the constantly changing light that reflects around it. The images are not what you would typically call holy or iconic, the animals are simplistic, sometimes flawed; the portraits are often dark or haunted. I don’t polish them or look for perfection; I leave them in their reflected light. I intend to demonstrate the ordinary to be extraordinary and leave each one as perfect in its imperfection.
