Sally's work is modernist and figurative - a blend of lyric dream, worldly

experience and set in recognizable New Zealand and Australian landscapes.

She is a painter of allegory and each painting is a journey of dicovery.

Time periods overlap. Fragmentation and montage are very much our way of

seeing but rather than deconstructing the surface on which she works, Sally

uses fragments of reality to create and construct a new and inclusive narrative.

...The freshness of Something Else - besides Sally Griffin's lovely,

expressionist illustrations at the head of each chapter - is that it tells a story

from our recent history that has seldom been told: the death of all those lush,

hippy dreams in the arid, consumerist wasteland of the 21st century.
