Susan Isaac’s work on exhibition at Staithes Gallery

Susan Isaac was born in Cardiff but now lives and works in Nottinghamshire. She makes regular trips to paint in both Cornwall and North Yorkshire as she loves to paint the sea and the built environment of seaside towns and villages.

She works mostly in oils in a loose figurative style which occasionally dissolves into the abstract elements of her compositions. Her subjects are mainly town or seascapes. She loves the insistent repetitive textures of the built environment contrasting with the gentle rhythms of nature.

The placing of elements is fundamental to my work. I’m seeking a perspective that projects outward as if to engulf the viewer – I want you to feel tipped into the painting.”
