Hello, I am Sue Mackay, a Toronto-based artist.

My work is driven by the space around me.  I start with objects and colour and obsess with both until the image is etched into my mind and into my stroke.  I paint and repaint until the the canvas is but an essence from where I began. My paintings have layers as I will often work and rework a piece to try to free the image.  The viewer can find remnants or scratchings from a previous layer that offers texture and depth to the work. I build from piece to piece as I paint - sometimes capturing a colour combination or a spatial reference from a still life that will take down a much more abstrated path. 

 

I have studies art  both academically and privately for over 20 years.  My work has been shown in North America and Europe and is sold primarily through private sale.
