“This body of work is about power,” explains artist, Susie Dureau. “More specifically, it is about the ways that gender equity and global diaspora is changing the dynamics of power in our time. The paradigm of power that employs intimidation and brute force is gradually giving way to an alternative model of strength and leadership that is compassionate, intuitive and resilient.”

 

Susie continues: “The titles of these works are various translations of the word grace. I feel that grace is the best way to describe this kind of power. The translations include Vietnamese, Maori, Finnish, Irish and Dharug. In my paintings I work towards achieving a formal quality that is strong and gentle at the same time, keeping in mind the theme of soft power. Colour and clouds are recurring motifs in my quest for this effect. The elements of nature that are ethereal and yet indomitable then become models for the renewal of this ancient paradigm.”
