Susan Evans – cloudscapes, seascapes and landscapes
Susan Evans is inspired by horizons and the mysteries of distance, skies and cloud patterns. She creates paintings of immense calm, with a spacial and emotional depth. Her work fuses the sensibility of early-nineteenth-century romanticism with American post-war abstraction.
Using cloths, she thinly stains wide-open areas of canvas and then applies a combination of wet-on-wet, impasto brush work, and sometimes palette knife. The variety of technique reflects the complexity of the subject matter.
Susan lives and works in Hove, on the south coast of England. She has had solo shows in London, the Netherlands and the USA and has participated in many group exhibitions. She also shows in art fairs in England and abroad.
She is represented in the permanent collections of Exeter College Oxford, Peterborough Museum, Abbott Mead Vickers, Old Mutual, and Live Wire in California. She is also recognised in the National Catalogue collection.
