This month’s Virtual Showcase introduces our latest paintings by Suki Wapshott. This group of new work features scenes of North Cornwall’s beautiful St Enodoc, Daymer Bay, Polzeath and Port Isaac.
Fans of Suki’s work will be familiar with the dazzling array of colours used in her paintings, from her favourite Magenta to Kings Blue, and her skill in taking powerful hues from bright to softly subdued. As a studio painter, her many hours spent walking and sketching the coastline are translated back at the easel into works filled with emotive response more than observation, works which embrace experimentation and the beauty of accidental details. The raw texture of the canvas, Suki’s own hands, as well as rags, brushes and palette knives, are all employed in the creation of her vibrant works.
