 Susan Baird: All Around Me

Image1

Description

Susan Baird’s lyrical paintings drift weightlessly between different realities. Within them, a time long past mingles with a poignantly intimate present in a tessellating dance that visualises the connectedness of all things. Though we may be inclined to label these works as ‘landscapes’ and ‘still lives’, they are more aptly portraits, tracing the emotional physiognomy of the artist’s experiences. Physical topography coalesces with psychological and spiritual terrain, forging a visual poetry that sings of place, person and everything in between.

In her new series, Baird continues to contribute her unique voice to the rich artistic legacy of Hill End, in regional New South Wales. Over ten years since first visiting this gold rush town, two residencies and a house later, the artist distills Hill End’s iconic landscape into empathetic orchestrations wherein the weight of colonial history presses against the stillness of the present moment.
