Sally Bourke  2018 Tall Tales and True

Artist Statement

Tall Tales and True by Sally Bourke is a container for oral histories with unbelievable elements. The narrator seems to have been included in its stories. The silent glances of the characters belie the gravity of its heroes. Perhaps even at the expense of the truth. The painted protagonists of Tall Tales and True ride the spectrum between Veritas, gossip, and the ironic solitude of the echo chamber.
