Moody Blue – Bourke’s parrots and White winged wrens by Susan Skuse

More is More — that’s my motto. All respect to those who ruthlessly pare down their images to the minimalist essence, but that is not my way. Nature is never less than generous in colours, pattern, texture and movement and I feel that my work is a very pale echo of what is actually out there. This painting works around a colour scheme of  blue and salmon pink with beautiful Burke’s parrots and white winged wrens

As an artist living and working in the Gold Coast Hinterland I draw inspiration from the natural world and the wonderful wildlife surrounding us, especially the birds.  Living on an acreage property in the Gold Coast Hinterland, I am particularly well endowed with birds.  I first trained as an artist in the 1980’s and have more recently completed degrees in Fine Arts and Philosophy. My current work brings together a diverse range of influences including Asian philosophy and traditional art, textile pattern, bird-watching and the phenomenology of perception. I work with layers of colour and pattern combined with realistic depictions of Australian birds.

The work goes through a number of processes. Firstly, I create an abstract colour background, usually using vibrant lithographic inks diluted with solvent to create fluid organic effects. Then I work with my ever growing library of custom made stencils – sometimes plant forms, sometimes abstract or classical patterns.  I use the stencils and masks to build up a many-layered background of semi-transparent patterns and forms. When I am happy with the background I then sit back and consider what bird subject it suggests to me. I rarely know at the beginning what the final painting will look like.  There is a lot of chance in my work, and I enjoy that.

I like to work with high quality materials that will result in long-lasting artworks.  I usually paint on flat cotton canvas so that when the work is put on a timber stretcher the patterns seamlessly flow around the edge. This makes framing optional.  I only use the finest quality artist’s oil paints that are vibrant and fade-resistant.
