Suzannah Sinclair's Sensual Women

August 29, 2014

  'My work is based on mirroring and transference, finding things in the world that already exist and projecting my personal experiences and emotions on to them. Reinterpreting that experience as a painting for others to then do the same. Being a woman, it’s what I know and what I am drawn to. The intangible thoughts and feelings behind a look on a face, a gaze, or a gesture of a body and drawing it out and highlighting it is at the center of my practice. At the same time, taking ownership of painting the female nude as a woman when throughout history that subject and being a painter was (and still sometimes is) considered a man’s role.'
