Statement


Sue Kennington is a London born artist whose work addresses the use of colour and human touch as an expressive medium. She is interested in anything that will suggest a possibility of breaking a seemingly unbreakable system. Her work juggles opposing principles of rational and intuitive thinking, and the means she uses are often analogous with her narrative idea. Her current work is concerned with urban isolation, present apathy in the face of cataclysmic change and a nostalgic desire for “wish it was the sixties” etc and how best painting can be used to express this condition. 

Sue Kennington received her MA in Fine Art from Goldsmiths College, London in 2002, and her BA from Chelsea in 1994. In 1996 her work featured in ‘Newcontemporaries’ at Tate Liverpool and the Camden Arts Centre, London, and she had her first solo show in the UK at the Lanchester Gallery, Coventry in 1997. Recent exhibitions include: ‘Frame Structure’ at Galleria la Veronica, Modica, Sicily, 2007, ‘Three Painters’ at Belgrave Gallery, St Ives, 2010 and ‘Oh!Nirica at Galleria Otto in Firenze, 2011.  She is currently Professor of Painting at the Siena Art Institute in Italy. Sh lives, works and exhibits in both London and Italy.
