Australian painter, printmaker
(b. 1962, Geelong, Victoria)
Sue Anderson’s bold and unique paintings, prints and drawings celebrate the Australian landscape, its places of beauty and those of neglect, her works often depicting natural areas and wildlife on the edge of destruction from the impending urban sprawl. Sue Anderson’s work uses simple shapes within bold forms of colour and delicate textural areas: “These pictures…are part song, part dream, sometimes real, sometimes imagined, for the love of nature, and the sadness of its demise, the beauty of the night, the mysterious ways of the birds.” From Wake Up calls 2004. Sue Anderson’s work is held in many private and public institutions in Australia and overseas including the collections of Art Bank, ANZ, Art Gallery of NSW and Rio Tinto.
