Item details

Red River Rush is a special work to me in that I feel I've achieved my goal of creating a more abstract but still representational work ... to feel in the landscape rather than of the landscape. Created in mixed media (acrylic, oil, and wax) repeatedly layered, masked, washed off and rubbed back. This abstract approach of uncertain outcome has shifted the focus from detail to overall pattern and colour allowing the energy and underlying essence to emerge achieving an organic quality echoing transience. Created in 2018, acrylic, oil and cold wax on canvas 120cm x 120cm (47" x 47")

Susan’s works are contemporary and figurative with subtle abstract elements and surprises, underpinned by her concern for the environment, sustainable living and the value of a more simple life.

Acrylic and oil, patterned, layered and rubbed back allowing the underlying to emerge, achieving an organic quality, echoing transience, evoking nostalgia and inviting appreciation for the often taken for granted.
