Susan Brown A Tale of Two Cities


Susan Brown BAHons HonDArt MCSD Susan Brown was born in Yorkshire. She studied at Leeds Polytechnic between 1976 and 1979 gaining a BA Hons in Three Dimensional Design and has since been the recipient of many art prizes and awards for her paintings, including: The Laing Art Competition; Hunting Art Prize, Regional Winner; Penrose Purchase Prize 2005 and the Singer & Friedlaner Sunday Times Watercolour Competition 2001, where she was a finalist. Susan Brown’s paintings are bold and striking. She works predominantly using watercolour and acrylic, with much of her work featuring European cities and focussing on man-made structure and city life, and man’s relationship with his environment. These architectural studies explore the rhythm and movement within buildings and interiors. However, Susan is not limited to architectural studies; she also creates beautiful abstract paintings, which are inspired by still life subjects and landscapes, focusing on texture and pattern. Susan’s latest works looks to the source of the inspiration that lies behind man-made structures - to the formulas and patterns found in the natural world, the cycle of growth and decay, the very structure of life and the continuum of the life cycle. Talking about her paintings Susan says: ‘I look at a field, it’s content and it’s changing form over the seasons. I look at the connection, the structure that links the air and the earth and the power of the everyday’ Susan Brown paintings appear in many notable private and public contemporary art collections, including Halifax Plc, Allied Domecq, Sir George Martin Trust and the Universities of Sheffield and York.
