Susan Laughton - Solo Exhibiton

Thought provoking solo exhibition ‘Measured Space’ by painter Susan Laughton, at new contemporary gallery Duckett and Jeffreys, explores elements of land and sky and the marks we make upon them.

Susan says;
“The landscape is my starting point, not as a picturesque static view, but as a space travelled through and experienced often on the edges of the urban and the rural. It is a source of man made and natural structures, surfaces and colour that allow me to construct my own pared down responses to capture memories of land and sky and the marks we make upon them.

I make drawings of remembered details seen from the corner of my eye, fleeting juxtapositions elusive to photography or more studied compositions. These feel like a search for my own language of marks, signs and symbols to bring order, balance and control to an often chaotic visual world. Man made structures, in particular, impose their presence on the sky: power lines, telegraph poles, fences, bridges, cut hedges, an isolated building.”

Opened in 2010, Duckett and Jeffreys Gallery presents an exciting rolling programme of solo shows from national and international artists. Artists are chosen for their confident aesthetic and an imaginative application of concepts and materials.
