York Minster by Susan Brown

Stunning paintings of York Minster by Susan Brown
Until 4 July 2021
Susan Brown was born & still lives in Yorkshire although exhibits nationally. Initially she studied 3D Design at Leeds College of Art & since then has progressed her two main areas of interest - interior design and contemporary painting - in tandem, the latter involving numerous commissions and several projects where she worked both as designer and artist.

She paints theatrical and musical scenes, still life and landscape, but is most particularly known for her architectural subjects, especially cityscapes. Her paintings are bold and striking, predominantly worked in watercolour and acrylic, & her style is immediately recognisable. Her architectural studies focus on city life and man's relationship with his environment, exploring the rhythm and movement within buildings and interiors, & in recent years she has focussed on architectural studies of a range of European cityscapes, such as Prague, Lille, Paris & Venice. Since lockdown she has enjoyed to returning to paint York.

Her musical interest included the role of artist-in-residence at York Early Music Festival in 1995, as part of the series arranged by Kentmere House Gallery.

Her focus is on city life and man's relationship with his environment, exploring the rhythm and movement within buildings and interiors. However, she also creates beautiful abstract paintings, inspired by still life subjects and landscapes, and focusing on texture and pattern.

Susan’s paintings appear in many notable private and public contemporary art collections, including: Halifax Plc, Allied Domecq, Sir George Martin Trust, the Universities of Sheffield and York, HBOS & the National Trust. She has shown at the Royal Academy, the Royal Scottish Academy, the Royal Watercolour Society and the New English Art Club, as well as many leading independent galleries in London & across the country. In 1994 she was artist in residence at the York Early Music Festival, organised by Kentmere House Gallery.

She has also been the recipient of many art prizes and awards, including: The Laing Art Competition; Hunting Art Prize (regional winner); Penrose Purchase Prize, and the Singer & Friedlander Sunday Times Watercolour Competition, where she was a finalist, Hunting Observer, Lynn Painter-Stainer & ING Discerning Eye.
Susan has published several books of her work, the latest of which is due to be published later this year, featuring her more abstract work & entitled ‘Landscape’.

She has been showing at Kentmere House Gallery since 1990 & a collection of her recent paintings of York Minster are now on show at the gallery, throughout May & June. The gallery is open anytime – ring or email, or just take pot luck & ring the bell.
