Sue Bryan

As a native of Ireland, the landscape there has certainly shaped and influenced my own history.  Many of my drawings are of places that have a deep personal association for me; an endeavor perhaps to stay connected to my roots.  My aim, however, is not only to convey a sense of place and belonging, but also an attempt to capture the ineffable, to evoke a feeling, or a memory, to invite the viewer to look beyond and beneath what they see.  My process is one of building up tones and textures using a technique of charcoal and carbon combined. This process yields a wonderful range of blacks and grays that vary in density and transparency as much as in tonality. Much of drawing’s appeal to me lies in its very constraint, in its simplification, in the reduction of nature’s macrocosm to the coal-black char of organic matter. For me, the act of drawing is an end itself - Sue Bryan, 2015
