FIND THE ART THAT WORKS FOR YOU.
FEATURE ARTIST : SUE DANIEL
about Sue’s work:
Confident and intuitive brush strokes – and a variety of knives, scrapers and custom made tools – produce a dissonance between the carefully controlled and the spontaneous. At the same time the hours of rubbing and layering of thinned oils convey depth and timelessness. The final bold strokes give each piece vibrancy and presence, and demonstrate her artistic confidence.
Sue’s methodology explores the “control and chance concept” popularized by the artists of the New York School in the ‘50s – the abstract expressionists – where the artist consciously drives the creation process while encouraging and exploiting the random wonders that can occur by taking creative chances. Each subject is discovered and rediscovered in the creation and recreation of the piece; each translucent layer adds to its depth and complexity.
