MAPPING SPACE


Sue’s current series of work layers oil paint onto translucent handmade paper into which she has embedded vintage maps and in some cases plants.  The alchemical process of mixing media fascinates her, and here the map within the paper combines with the oil paint to produce images of great depth and beauty. Each painting is achieved through a meditative, creative process. Each mark that is made is reflected upon.
