  Back to profiles

Sue Lynn, a Yorkshire contemporary artist. has been painting for over 30 years. Sue studied Fine Art and Crafts at Leeds College of Art, BA Hons Art and Design at Bradford College. Sue uses oils primarily, to draw out intangible moments from specific memories. These result in richly textured and colourful paintings.

I am a contemporary artist, born in Leeds. Realising a life long ambition when I began to paint in my early 40s, reminiscence has been the driving force within my studio practice ever since. After moving around for a while in my 50s, I returned to Yorkshire, settling in the Harrogate area where I live and work.

My chosen medium is oil paint, for its endless possibilities and qualities. I draw on elements of intangibility from a particular memory, to then re-visit them in paint until a compromise is reached between remembered ‘moment’ and the painted image in front of me.

I’m not looking for literal translations, as I realise there is no precise formula for memory’s understanding. The complexities of remembering can only be an individual experience, my own short term memory for instance has always been erratic, whilst my long term reminiscences can be vividly detailed.

Art practice for me is a exploration of reminiscence and the problematics that surround it.
