Two contemporary painters with distinct approaches to place and painterly expression.

About

Susan Absolon : “I work spontaneously responding to paint, to the way it’s held by a surface and to my inner monologue about the world. My paintings tend to have a sense of place about them, and sometimes a thematic interest in mortality, or conflict, or female experience. But my approach is intentionally loose and I like to follow ideas that come from the painting process itself. I often use textual rather than visual source material : poetry, the Thesaurus, urban slang, idiom, the language of bureaucracy, words with inherent ambiguity. I want a painting to show me something I haven’t seen before, both to define its own reality and to resonate with lived experience, and to feed the mind as well as the eye.”

Amanda Thompson : “My practice draws on landscape and nature as a starting point to consider ideas about displacement, temporality, loss and change. I find meaning in the concepts which surround the words nature, landscape and environment. Through the act of walking, drawing, painting and photography I am noticing, exploring, reflecting and mapping the changes taking place within our fast moving world. I hope to create a reflective platform around the question of ‘what is nature now, how is it changing, and why is it so invaluable to humans both physically, emotionally, intellectually and sensorially?’“
