Sara Roney Gallery is situated in 19a Boundary Street Paddington, a stylish building that is an exciting blend of textile decorating shops and creative offices. Sarah has a major stake in this building and has taken the initiative of forming a new model of gallery at a time when they are badly needed.
Using the spaces of the building itself (the coffee shop and foyer and the corridors throughout the building) she exhibits contemporary art and video that is minimal and cool in feel. She has represented many artists in this setting over the last nine years.

Amelia and the Animals is drawn from journeys undertaken by mother and daughter in the interspecies world they inhabit with animals, of all varieties, over the past thirteen years.
The line between human and animal overlaps or is blurred, where animals are part of mother and child’s world and humans are a part of theirs. Fantasies and eccentricities are explored to create a cultural space in the photographs where animals not only co-exist with humans, but also interact as full partners.

I was fortunate to discover the enjoyment and power of the photographic image from a young age … from the day when I was about eleven years old and nagged my parents to buy my first camera … a plastic VP Twin camera from Woolworths for two shillings and sixpence. This exhibition begins with that very day decades back and tracks, in photographs and words, the development of my photographic work across a wide variety of situations and genres … and wielding a progression of various bits of camera kit.
