Susan has been creatively involved in commercial film promoting cutting edge technology for companies like O2, Samsung, Visa & MasterCard. "I am fascinated by people and love to capture a moment of their time in my paintings". Susan Hicks uses the classical composition of life study to create a modern stylised series of figurative works. The collection speaks the volumes of traditional sophistication, with tones of early 20th century masters, interspersed with the blotting of watercolour upon a crisp background. This approach makes us appreciate the curvature of her drawn lines, contextualised by their own interlocking and thus forming the human body. The technique generates a feminine touch, the bodies being softened despite the chosen poses. The finished result is clean yet still possesses the life and movement required to make a successful life-drawing.
