Susie Hartley

Susie Hartley portrait shot for website - Susie Hartley.jpg

Exploring shape, form and texture, I create sculptures that represent and interpret the human form. My expressive fragmented figures celebrate the strength and beauty of the female. Through twisting, arching and stretching my forms express tension and energy capturing movement in clay.

 

I have a classical style in my work and draw inspiration from ancient fragmented sculptures, using the torso as my main focal point. My work consists of simplified form and flowing lines and my partial figures are made working both from life and intuitively.

 

I have a BA Hons in Fine Art - whilst studying for my degree I learnt how to cast in plaster, resin and bronze and also work with ceramics and glazing techniques.
