Sandy Kennedy

b. 1965, England

My current work explores the visual, but mostly sensory, sensual memory of women. There is a quietness, a rhythm of time passing, a dream-like or hallucinogenic feel to the work, which sometimes uses ordinary specific words (a natural inclination given my abiding interest in literature and drama) to evoke the memories of intimate or private thoughts. The work, which is bathed in silences, investigates and plays with ideas of subtle sexual representations and perceptions, and its relationship to text, sound, touch, smell – senses most associated with memory. This work includes paintings, drawings, installation and film. Suggestive Biscuits are part of this body of work – a tongue-in-cheek play on words of eating and being eaten.
