Lot 72 - Susie Hamilton - Nurse 2
Acrylic and Pastel Pencil on Paper
A6 (10x15cm) original artwork
Signed on verso
I live and work in east London and make paintings, drawings and prints. My work often depicts figures in urban or natural wildernesses, a desert or a shopping mall for instance. The figures in my paintings are frequently solitary and may seem overwhelmed or challenged by their environments and also by my method of painting which defaces or abstracts them into mysterious, metamorphic shapes.

About the postcard artworks:
These cards despite nurses or doctors in Covid wards and are part of my C-19 series of works, made since last April, of neon-lit wards and figures transformed by masks and visors.
