Susan Preston - Susan PRESTON

In Susan Prestons' abstract paintings and drawings the visual elements of mark, line, tone and colour are independent of external references. Each is used to create an image that holds the attention and draws the viewer into their
ambiguous spaces. They are confined to the panels with echoes of the marks throughout the series.

Collections: United Therapeutics, USA, Marlborough College, UK, The Demarco European Art Foundation, Edinburgh. Private Collections in Singapore, Hong Kong, USA, UK. Susan Preston was born in Liverpool in 1943 and Studied at Liverpool school of Art and Fine Art at the The Surrey Institute.

In her recent paintings 'Winter Gardens' Preston builds structure on a subtle ground where the twig like marks are sometimes patterned, sometimes playful and meandering. Their strong presence is underpinned by the tension between the layers of oil paint. There is a sense of light coming from within the paintings and a grittiness that mitigates any tendency towards a casual elegance.
