Fallis is a skilled metalworker and has always been concerned with transforming surfaces and considers the making process to be a crucial element of her practice. She experiments with diverse materials including papier mache, fish skeletons, neon and bronze. Fallis refers to her sculptures as thinking tools. Her work is characterised by her quirky sense of humour, coupled with powerful messages on the environment and our consumer-led society.
Fallis has shown consistently across Britain. In 2009 a public sculpture by Fallis was installed in Newcastle Upon Tyne’s Forth Square, entitled DNA DL90; a monumental 9-meter high double helix structure made of supermarket shopping trolleys, a comment on contemporary consumer culture. Her work is part of public and private collections including Parabola Land Ltd, Hix restaurants and the Damien Hirst Murderme collection.
