Sue Southorn & Liz Townsend – Visual Connections
We are delighted to have this joint exhibition featuring recent landscapes and semi-abstract art work.
Liz paints with a fashion designer’s eye. Her individual colour choices reflect the excitement of a lifetime working with Italian and French couture fabrics and leathers.
She has transferred her passion and skills to create vibrant, textured paintings which are an extension of her life’s work. Liz often travels abroad where she paints outdoors to interpret the atmosphere and beauty of the place. She layers and embellishes images to create semi abstract still life, mountain and cityscapes.
Sue’s inspiration comes from the ever changing world. She creates muted to vibrant, painterly landscapes, seascapes and abstracts in acrylics and oils, responding in a spontaneous way to the environment. Her work, real or imagined, is grounded in the places she has visited and which evoke an emotional response. Whether working large or small scale, Sue explores and experiments with ideas and materials to capture and reveal the mood and atmosphere of a moment in time.
Sue has exhibited at East Lodge during WOS for the past two years and has had paintings selected for the RBSA 2018 “Open all Media” and the Coventry Open 2018.
