Exhibition running in Karamel from 23rd September to 28th October (Private View: 13th October from 6pm)
Liz Sutherland is a painter who makes vivacious studies of the figure, cityscapes and landscape. Working in oils on canvas and mixed media on paper she reduces a scene down to its essence and then records this with a bold use of colour and form.
Liz Sutherland completed a B.A. in History of Art before going on to do a post-graduate painting course at Central St Martins.
In the last three years Liz has been exploring the theme of Alexandra Palace and Park and has built up an impressive body of work which includes the iconic building of Ally Pally and its beautiful surrounding parkland spaces.
She uses charcoal and iPad sketches made in situ to inspire her oil paintings, which she then develops further in her studio. The fluid and expressive nature of her iPad sketches has influenced her recent work, as can be seen In the painting of “Alexandra Palace from below” where she uses loose sweeping brush strokes and bold colourful shapes to describe the trees and shapes of the buildings.
Her solo exhibitions include 2006 Chocolate Factory, Foyer , Wood Green, London. 2002 The Highgate Literary and Scientific Institution. 2000 Delibar, The City of London. 1995 and 1997 The Groucho Club. 1996 the Radcliffe Infirmary, Oxford.
For the last twelve years she has been part of the Chocolate Factory Open Studios in Wood Green where she has a studio and will be moving to the new Chocolate Factory 3 building in October.
All paintings and drawings are for sale and the iPad drawings can be ordered as Giclee prints to fit your required size.
