Looking Back; a Retrospective Show of Suzanne's Paintings, Drawings, Prints, Sculptures and Public Art
Suzanne started her career studying Fine Art at Central School of Art and Design in London, and later as a post-graduate at the Slade School of Fine Art. After training, Suzanne was awarded a traveling scholarship to Mexico and Guatemala. The stunning, bright colours she saw on that trip have influenced her work throughout her career, along with her growing fascination for other cultures.
Central to all Suzanne’s work is a structured working process. On her travels she records imagery, and later, in her studio, she selects and composes elements to create her individual, unique paintings and drawings.
In mid-career Suzanne began making wall-mounted and freestanding sculptures in metal. Some examples of these will be on show at the exhibition. This area of her work has grown enormously, and she is now well known as an artist working in the public art realm.
For this exhibition, Suzanne has chosen works that relate to different stages of her career, including pieces influenced by those early travels to Mexico. Following that came a fellowship in Rome, and visits to South-East Asia, Kenya, and North America. This show includes some very early works on hand-made papers, using a combination of pastels, watercolours, inks and paint.
Suzanne’s spacious and airy studio is in Bladon village, off the A4095. The entrance to the long drive is right by the new 20 mph sign. The first floor studio is contemporary in design, and overlooks the unusual and dramatic quarry garden. There is some parking at the studio, and also nearby in the village. For those seeking refreshments there is the nearby White House pub.
