SUE HEATLEY

I’m drawn to working within the confines that certain processes offer. The orderly pace inherent in printmaking and ceramic sculpture provides a tempo that helps me navigate visually and uncover things I didn’t know I was looking for. The elusive mark one can only achieve through printing attracts me constantly. I use monotype and linoleum as the jumping off point for collage and painting, building layers of formal abstractions on nature and the phenomena of the physical world. The resulting suspended animations are without agenda or artifice. They are simply my invitation to the viewer to look, jump in and swim around.
