FROM THE DOWNS TO THE SEA: SUE GREEN

Opening hours: Friday 10 June to Sunday 10 July
Thursday – Sunday 10.30 am– 4.30 pm

The coastline and the turbulent English Channel are a constant inspiration. Sue approaches these rhythms of shape and colour from different viewpoints attempting to capture and freeze a moment’s movement, quality of light and atmosphere through layers of broad confident brush marks and a palette of subtle hues and contrasting vibrant colours.

The coastline and the turbulent English Channel are a constant inspiration, as is the café life on the continent and the swirling was and exotic excitement of Africa and South America. “I approach these rhythms of shape and colour from different viewpoints attempting to capture and freeze a moment of movement quality of light and atmosphere through layers of broad confident brush-marks and a palette of subtle hues and contrasting vibrant colour.”

Sue’s paintings, living as she does on the south edge of the country, light refracts from the sea, stone and silver-leafed plants… her textured paintings are of distant lines of light… imagined landscapes and villages, for us to contemplate and dream.
