    About The Work

    This work from British artist Susie Hamilton is from a series entitled Beaches, which depicts various distant figures as shadows and silhouettes of color, contour and contrast, set against otherworldly ocean scenes. Green sand and twilight blue waves transform this distant composition, while bubbling turquoise clouds and purple bodies pepper the scene. The artist says of her process, “I am a representational painter but the representational overtaken by abstraction is important to me, partly because it is a way of challenging our identity but also because it is a way of reaching a point where the recognizable gives way to the unnamed. It dramatizes and contrasts two ways of seeing—through names or through nameless shapes. I want something that starts as a spectacle of the everyday life of the mall or the beach to end in a painting of something uncanny or mysterious.”
