Original painting in spray paint, acrylic and glitter on cotton stretched canvas. This canvas has been left in the elements to allow rain to poured onto the top layer. The resin has been deliberately dripped to create an uneven surface. It has a shiny appearance and looks like it has water running down it.
"I was deeply inspired and moved by Sadie Plant’s novel: “Zeros and Ones: Digital Women and the New Technoculture” This painting is part of a small series made in direct response to the reading. The novel is an investigation of women’s natural relationship with modern technology, an association which, Plant argues, will trigger a new sexual revolution."

In 2015 Rhiannon was awarded the John Hoyland Scholarship to study for her MA Fine Art at Chelsea College of Art. Her work focuses on the boundaries between real and fictional experiences, the blurred line between the conscious and unconscious mind, and is rooted in the personal dreams, nightmares, imagination and memories.
Experience and intuition collide in a colourful tide in these emotionally charged, expressive works by Rhiannon Salisbury. She creates galaxies of sharp colour and organic form, encouraging a dialogue between her paintings and the viewer, aiming to create a sincere and individual experience. The title “Crackling Desert” makes connotations to landscape, yet the piece itself is a rebirth of fantastical hues and breathless forms swimming through the canvas. With explosions of colour each piece breathes new life and a brevity of intensity with an immediacy that recalls a poetic absolution.
