Sue’s new painting The Kiss of Winter is a nod to Hans Andersen’s Snow Queen. The queen blows a kiss and freezes a climbing rose. For Christmas Artweeks, Sue has continued the story on the lunette window above her picture. Two doves take flight and turn rose-red as Winter utters her spell.
Also on display is the poem The Kiss of Winter by Jak Soroka, inspired by the painting… continuing Sue and Jak's collaboration, Drawn2BWilde.
The works will be on show at the South Oxford Arts group exhibition on 9 & 10 December 2023 - venue 404, South Oxford Community Centre, Lake Street, Oxford.
Sue Eves’ work is filled with historical, mythical and literary references in an Oxford that is awash with stories. Her paintings on windows have included Head of the River (Winter 2022), Out on the River (2022/SOLD) and I AM A SWAN collection for Artweeks in May 2023 and TEATIME (May 2022), a glass sundial table.
