Sue’s paintings are based on the relationship between texture, shape and light. Starting with observational drawings from life she uses bright acrylics and pastels on layered surfaces to add randomness and energy to her work.
Particularly drawn to natural objects and landscapes her work emphasises a love of colour, texture and movement in what can be touched and what can be seen in the distance.
“My work is a response to the relationship between texture, shape and light in just about everything around me but I’m particularly drawn to landscape and the human form. Faces are really interesting. I guess my influence has always been impressionist/expressionist art, especially the work of Paul Cezanne, Joaquín Sorolla, Santiago Rusinol, Joan Eardley and David Tress.
In the initial stages I sketch and draw from life completing the work in my tiny studio. I paint on textured surfaces to add randomness and energy to the mark making process and use pastels to add contrast to acrylic paint”
