Susan Miller is a watercolour painter.  By applying a poetic and often metaphorical language, she absorbs the meditative act of remembrance into daily practice.

Multilayered images arise in which the fragility and instability of our seemingly certain reality, is examined.  By contesting the division between memory and experience, she seeks to question perception with forms that teeter on the edge of recognition and alienation.

Employing the familiar lens of the family, her current series encourages the viewer to explore their own narrative through the transparent ghost-like, timeless images.  There is simplicity of colour, with subject stripped back to reveal a gaze that confronts, haunts and challenges.  There exists an overwhelming sadness, loneliness, a numinous quality to the paintings that occupying the liminal space where realities meet, meanings shift, past and present fuse.

These works in watercolour offer a sensitive, yet intense emotional connection to memories long forgotten.


Susan lives and works in St Leonards on Sea, East Sussex.
