Susan Murphy

Artist’s Statement

A Colourist at heart, Susan’s work concentrates on catching the balance of light, colour and shape to capture the beauty of the landscape in North East Victoria, where she lives and works, and also the landscape that surrounds her on her travels.

Whether the works focus on the almost haunted tree-scapes of Mt Hotham or the immense ever-changing sky, the colour shines through.

Susan works exclusively in oil paint which she has used for the last 25 years, a medium that lends itself to pure colour and translucency.

Susan graduated from Edinburgh College of Art in 1987 and has juggled practicing art and working in Commercial and Public Galleries in Scotland, Ireland and Australia since then.
