More Information About Susan R

Susan R Hughes is a visual artist who works from life. Images made consider the physical qualities of materials employed. Paint is often applied and partially washed away to leave ambiguous layers of colour to cross over and merge. The use of repetition seeks to explore the  boundaries between drawing and painting, representation and abstraction, and the external verses the internal world.

I am an experimental artist grounded in the traditional values of drawing and painting, whilst subtly employing theories on identity, which are then imbued within the images I make

Recent work has examined the female nude and the construction of feminine identity, through a series of paintings and hand-made prints. Susan also runs Weymouth Life Drawing Group and runs a life drawing class for Artslink, Sherborne

Exhibiting regularly in the region, Susan has just completed an eighteen month project with Wessex Contemporary Arts and Dorset County Museum on the writer/poet Thomas Hardy, and is currenly exhibiting this collection of images at his home in Dorchester at Max Gate.
