- Really delighted that my ‘Berlin 1’ piece has been named for 1st prize in the ‘Our Changing World’ summer exhibition at the D31 Art Gallery. One third of a very personal response to spending time in this extraordinary city.I've written about my living sculpture ‘Green Fuse' in this blog piece (you will need to copy and paste the link) - https://susan-isaac.co.uk/2021/08/30/the-green-fuse-part-of-the-living-landscape-project. Part of the Living Landscape artists trail, curated by Angie Atmadjaja and @rebeccajblackwood - at @the_hopbarn from 1 Sept to 28 Nov.I've just sent out a newsletter with a summary of what I'm up to at the moment (there is a link on my website via the bio or copy and paste this: https://mailchi.mp/dc46d7136417/summer-round-up).Another glimpse of my living sculpture, 'Green Fuse', in progress at @the_hopbarn for their Living Landscape trail. This is the third part of what I have come to think of as a narrative triptych, highlighting the latent power of the natural world.The second piece I have in the @wirksworthfestival 'Online Art Prize' is my painting of "Newstead Abbey from across the Lake". This Gothic ruin was part of Lord Byron's home in Nottinghamshire. It retains its beautiful façade facing out over the ornamental lake - the dissolving tracery and hollow spaces letting in the autumnal colours of the woodland beyond.

I haven’t written for a while as I’ve been so busy painting, putting on an open studio and sending work to galleries. As Christmas approaches, I wanted to put down something about the pieces I’ve been working on during the … Continue reading
The Newark Pop Up Gallery has now vanished. We did our last day yesterday (Saturday) and everyone removed their stuff today – you wouldn’t know we had been there! It was a really good experience and I thoroughly enjoyed teaming … Continue reading
Had our private view of the gallery last night. It went really well. No-one thought to make a note of numbers, but my daughter took a few photos and you can see it was busy.
Just finished hanging work for the Pop Up Gallery in Newark ready for the opening tomorrow. There really is an exciting mix of works. Bill Ming has some terrific new abstract collages, alongside the exuberant figure paintings of Nikki McKay. … Continue reading
