ARTIST SUSAN PATERSON

Susan Paterson was born in 1958 in Halifax, Nova Scotia. She attended Mount Allison University receiving her Bachelor of Fine Arts in 1980. She has also attended Byam Shaw School of Art in London, England; NSCAD, Halifax; Academy of Realist Art, Toronto; School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and Grand Central Atelier, New Hampshire. Her studies have been supported by an Elizabeth Greenshield’s grant, a Nova Scotia Arts Council grant and an Academy of Realist Art scholarship.

"My work evokes the past, both in technique and in subject.  I do highly detailed studies of landscape, florals and everyday objects, capturing the subtleties of the light, colour and textures that are so fascinating but so often overlooked.  When I’m painting I love getting lost in the details and the challenge of creating an illusion that explains how I feel about what I see.  I’m fascinated by light and how it describes form, changes colours, is reflected back and disappears into the dark depths of a background. I work in subdued colours, preferring the subtleties of the subject to stand out.   I get great pleasure from slowing down, spending hours intently observing and trying to capture the incredible beauty that surrounds us."
