Artists > Susan Caines RWA

Susan Caines was born in Bristol and studied at the West of England College of Art specialising in painting.

After a career in teaching young children she started painting full time in 1988. In 1995 she was elected a member of the Royal West of England Academy and in 1999 was given a show at the R.W.A. She moved to Brighton in 1995 where she now lives and paint and has had a one man person show each year from 1990.

Initially influenced by the flattened space and decorative qualities of the Quattrocento and primitive Siennese painting her work has developed within a duality of landscape and still life.  The former are often landscapes created or recalled, memories of special places.  The objects in the still life paintings can be real or imagined but have their own space and aura and form tableaux or placements.

Recent work show paintings of compressed space in which ojbects breathe in meditative silence. Colour is pale and muted. The motif is revisited deepening the interpretation of simple objects.
