I spent the morning with Susan Baird shooting her working in her Leichhardt studio. Susan is known for her landscape painting and represented in Sydney by Arthouse Gallery and in Melbourne by Flinders Lane Gallery.
Susan has a show Land By Water opening in Melbourne on the 2nd May 2017 - 20th May 2017
"Baird’s paintings are not just based on pure observation of visual phenomena. When she returns to the studio the artist sets about harnessing a remembered moment, conjuring the interplay of form, shape, light and colour to distill sensations and emotions experienced while out in the field. It is this that drives her practice, the search for a visual language that expresses both optic memory and her own internalized reaction to it." Marguerite Brown 2014
