Sue Wademan is one of New Zealand's leading contemporary Textile Artists. She has recently exhibited her work at the NZ ART SHOW in Wellington, and next year Sue will be exhibiting her work at the Remarkables Quilt Symposium in Queenstown, April 2011
Sue lives on the top of Fernhill, in Queenstown, overlooking the spectacular beauty of Lake Wakatipu & the Remarkable Mountains.
For 10 years now her inspiration for her 'fabric paintings' has come from this environment & the changing colours of the seasons. A large, 4 panelled piece, commissioned by the Aspiring Arts & Culture Trust, called 'The Four Seasons', is on display in the Queenstown airport for all the visitors to see and enjoy.
Only recently has Sue's palette turned back to her RED side, to what she calls her "SOUL SCAPES" These are even more impressionistic than her landscapes.
Another recent deviation from her fabric collage landscapes is her acrylic on canvas textural paintings, that she calls "FENG SHUI feather paintings". These have such rhythm of texture and line that you feel like stroking them!
'Sue's landscapes are filled with emotion. Their impressionistic quality evokes different things each time you look at them' 'They are jewel like expressions of the landscape' 'Her Souscape series have definately come from her soul'
