Says Susie of this work: “Sound in a Cathedral has been painted during the 2020 Coronavirus self-isolation period when a wide angle of feeling was swirling around me and my fellow humans – like a weather system that encompassed the whole world. This amplification of emotion felt to me like sound in a cathedral which embraces all present in a common vibration.

The starting point for this painting was a bright dawn walk, when looking out over the ocean I could hardly tell the ocean from the sky. The peaks of the waves were ethereal and the light on the clouds gave them the appearance of structural solidity. Back in the studio, my relationship with the painted surface is like this – the congress between structure and ethereality evolves as the painting progresses, drawing in emotion and touch. Like sound in a cathedral, like a shared experience of fear and hope, like paint on a surface, clarity and ethereality intertwine.”
