Sue Rusk works and lives in Montreal where she has taught drawing and painting since 1975. Rusk has participated in numerous solo exhibitions in Canada and the USA and has been part of countless group shows in Canada, Europe, ISA, Israel and Brazil. Her works are found in many major corporate, public and private collections nationally and internationally.
Rusk’s paintings are about her personal surroundings and her response to them. The spirit of her work portrays the gentle balance between the exterior and the interior worlds.
In Rusk’s lyrical new Sonate series, she combines collage, paint, oil stick, pastel on her own hand-made paper. She delves into an interior history by layering materials, combining gestural marks with vibrant and subtle fields of colour.
