Susan Baird


Sydney-based artist Susan Baird creates poetic paintings that capture the essence of a wide variety of Australian environments. Often created en plein air, her works canvass the vicissitudes of the natural world, springing as much from physical topographies as they do from psychological, emotional and spiritual affiliations. Vibrant strokes of colour, swift brushwork and suggested forms conjure a kind of optic memory, evoking the sensations of form, shape, light and colour that have inspired generations of artists. Consciously harnessing liminal or ‘in between’ moments – when the sun retreats behind a cloud, the wind caressing the trees or the pool of light that gushes in at the day’s end  – Baird’s paintings channel the artist’s harmonic awareness of the rhythms of nature.
