The 'Head' drawings are in conversation. There is a desire to understand more about human relationships and non-verbal communication, particularly that of Sally Taylor's own interaction with others. These new 'Heads' have developed from an investigation of the dynamics of social groups; how hierarchies are formed, roles are assumed and behaviours are managed. They convey an array of postures, often humorously perceived.

Sally Taylor purposefully works on salvaged bits of ordinary used paper and inner sleeves of old books, rather than confine herself to conform to what is deemed suitable or fit for purpose. These surfaces bear the marks of social exchange, traces of histories in the form of previous marks, imperfections and doodles.
