Sally Gorham made the giant piece, titled BIG DATA, for the Art Souterrain 2018 festival, which runs in the Canadian city throughout March.

The work is in the glass entrance to the Cité Internationale des Arts building in the heart of Montreal’s financial district.

It was made in response to the festival’s theme of ‘Work’ and is an abstract window installation which uses the geometric language of performance management.

Sally has lived in Stortford for more than 20 years. For most of that time she worked as an NHS manager, but six years ago she took early retirement to pursue her love of art.

Starting out with weekly painting classes at Parndon Mill in Harlow, she eventually decided to pursue her teenage dream of going to art college and in 2017 graduated from Central Saint Martins at the University of the Arts London with a BA in fine art.
