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. 

Kennington's practice is an exploration into the possibilities of colour as a language. She is currently investigating the interaction between straight lines and human shaped curves, the simplest of gestures that are based upon the limitations of her own body. Using colour to balance and unbalance the forms that derive from this. She is interested in the relationship between human systems and nature. She lives and works between an abandoned part of southern Tuscany and London.

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’ with Adelita Husni Bey at Galleria la Veronica, Modica, Sicily, 2007, ‘Three Painters’ at Belgrave Gallery, St Ives, 2010 and 'This Year's Model' at Studio 1.1, in London 2014. She is currently Professor of Painting at the Siena Art Institute in Italy. Sh lives, works and exhibits in both London and Italy.
