Says Susie of this work: “My paintings are portals into a metaphysical arena where emotions are weathers, where imagination and reality merge – where humanity is the landscape. I have always been interested in weather as an expression of human experience.
‘The Torchbearers’ is a painting about fresh perspectives. Together with its companion work, ‘Voyager’, the painting offers light in a dark time. The work depicts a coastal dawn with grids of lights on the headland and in string garlands that indicate co-ordinates, a guide, the beginning of a new orientation.
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.
The painting begins with a coastal dawn, lights on the headlands and in string garlands indicate co-ordinates, some sort of mapping, some attempt at a new orientation. This work envisages a world that will never be the same.”
