West Light

2nd June 2023 - 30th June 2023

Susan Hughes exhibition at The Linen Hall. West Light.

An Exhibition by Susan Hughes 

Susan Hughes presents a series of atmospheric paintings of breeding seabirds including Arctic terns, little terns and fulmars. She paints in response to observations made during artist residencies on Rathlin Island, Inishlacken (Connemara) and Hrisey Island (Iceland).  Hughes is greatly influenced by the birdwatching practice of her own father.

‘Hughes has an ability to evoke lyrical intonation in tonality of blues with a light touch that allows each hue to descend on the image as light as a breath, while the similarity of likeness holds the two perceptions together, like a musical chord.’
– Slavka Sverakova (2019)

02 June – 30 June | Vertical Gallery | Free
