After an absence of several years we are delighted to have lured this private and intimate painter to make a new series of 6 pastel drawings for us to launch at the London Art Fair:
2022, Pastel and graphite on prepared paper, 17.7 x 20.3cm
About Susan Preston
Susan Preston is an abstract painter using oil paint and pastel. These are mobile and versatile mediums; the imagery changes through the painting process, dissolving and reforming as a layered, ambiguous space develops. Through this meditative process, the work alludes to memory traces, to the shifting spaces between presence and absence, loss and retrieval.
A piece is eventually resolved when the tension between the layers and the elements on the surface draw the viewer into the space, where the painting reveals its secrets slowly; these works repay contemplation.
Susan Preston has exhibited widely, including in Strasbourg and London. Her work is in collections in Europe, Asia and the USA.
