Susie Phillips



​Known as a still life painter, Phillips continues her foray into the ​"un-​still life​"​, choosing not to render her objects with placid and calm imagery, but with a bold and skewed perspective reminiscent of the later still lifes of Cézanne and Matisse. Vessels, flowers, and the patterned tablecloths ​on which they inhabit are applied in a variety of bold styles, washed in watercolor or blocked in opaque oil paint. Susie Phillip's flattened pictures, with neither foreground nor background, but simply the surface of the work, indulge in romantic energy.

What began as a practice of embroidery during the pandemic lockdown has become a full expression of Susie Phillips creative output. Her small scale embroideries feature portraits, still lifes and fauna delicately detailed with gentle reminiscence.
