Backwaters II

Oil paint is mobile and versatile; 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.
