Sue Daniel explores color to depict and reflect the underlying drama found in life. Through vibrant oils, Sue expresses emotion; combining pure abstraction with surreal touches, she creates big, bold pieces on canvas. Although fully abstract, there are echoes of the old masters in color and motion, and of the surrealists in creating stories. Sue Daniel was born in Hungary in 1948 and came to Canada during the Hungarian Revolution in 1956; freedom and independence are critical components of her work. Painting for Sue is an emotionally charged experience. Every piece reflects a unique thought, a feeling, a passion that involves the viewer, sometimes calming, peaceful and other times challenging, unsettling – making one look more closely. Sue’s paintings display an edgy beauty that she builds gradually through multiple layers as she digs deeper to uncover her vision so it can be shared with the viewer.
