Sue Kennington

Page 1 | 2 | 3 | Biography | Information & News


Born in London, 1955. Works between Italy and London.

Sue Kennington received her MFA from Goldsmiths College, London in 2002, and her BA in Fine Art specializing in painting from Chelsea in 1994. In 1996 her work featured in ‘Newcontemporaries’ at Tate Liverpool and the Camden Arts Centre, London.

Recent exhibitions include: ‘Three Painters’ at Belgrave Gallery, St Ives, 2010, and ‘Frame Structure’ at Galleria la Veronica, Modica, Sicily with Adelita Husni Bey, 2007. In 2012 she was awarded a residency at the VSC in Vermont, USA. She is currently Professor of Painting at the Siena Art Institute in Siena.

Kennington’s work explores how colour can be used as a visual language, using touch, geometry and the totally random to arrive at a visible solution.

"My work practice is an investigation into the possibilities of colour as a language. I use touch, geometry, and systems combined with the totally random, to arrive at an essentially expressive, romantic language. Drawing and measurement try to make an irrational world rational, and by so doing, tame it. Colour eludes measurement and the rational, slipping beyond meaning. This work is a fusion of both these things, and incapable of standing without the inherent tension between colour and drawing. The means or method that I use is often analogous, or has some kind of dialogue or connection, even if antagonistic, with the idea. I access whatever means I find effective at the time."
