Hickster Projects

Sue Kennington

B. 1955 London (UK)
Lives and works between Rome and San Giovanni d’Asso, Italy

Sue Kennington trained in London at Goldsmiths College (MFA 2002) and Chelsea College of Art (BA Painting 1994). She moved her practice to Italy in 2002. Her work is an ongoing exploration into the use of color as language, made up of highly specific color combinations. –- a condensation of fast, powerful and almost hypnotic outbursts intertwined with an obsessive mathematical proportion between notated colors. Her work while centering on the indifference of nature, acknowledges the thorough connectedness between artist and environment, the forest and the city, light and dark.
