Susie Hamilton (b. 1950) studied painting at St Martins School of Art and Byam Shaw School of Art in London as well as reading English Literature at Birkbeck,
University of London where she gained a PhD. Hamilton paints figures in a wilderness which is characterised by strong, glaring light, and evokes both
beauty and danger. Set in challenging places her figures are also made vulnerable by her “iconoclastic” method of painting which seeks to deface or undo them. They are bombarded by blots, dissolve into fluidity or turn into nameless shapes so that an identifiable image is made into something unnamed and mysterious. She is represented by Paul Stolper Gallery which during the pandemic exhibited her work in online viewing rooms entitled C19 and Ecstasy. She has had solo shows at St
Paul’s Cathedral, London; Ferens Art Gallery, Hull; Triumph Gallery, Moscow; and has exhibited at The National Museum, Gdansk; Towner Gallery, Eastbourne and Flowers Gallery, London. Her work is included in The New Hall Art Collection,
Murderme UK and The Priseman Seabrook Collection. Over the last year her C19 works have been acquired by The Science Museum, The British Museum Department of Prints and Drawings and Imperial College Art Collection.
