BIO

 

Sally Novak is an award winning Brooklyn-based artist. Born on the West Coast, she was based for many years in San Diego, California represented by Galleria Dos Damas before moving to New York City in 2004. Ms. Novak works in a variety of media, including oils and acrylic on canvas, found objects and recycled materials.  Her current works are deconstructed landscapes in acrylics on paper.  Ms. Novak’s abstracted forms are influenced by the natural world. She references personal memories that range from her travels across the U.S. and abroad, places she’s lived, road trips across the Pacific Southwest, and the reality of climate crisis.

 

A competitive swimmer as a child, along with her siblings, Ms. Novak is concurrently working on a figurative acrylic on canvas series based on bodies of water and family. The series began on Zoom at the onset of the pandemic every Sunday with California-based artist Barbara Stanley and Texas-based artist Melissa Osborne. Their weekly studio practice continues to this day. 

 

Ms. Novak’s art is collected worldwide. To see more of her work, please visit her Instagram page.
