Artist's Statement

Sue Godfrey Clark

Sue's background includes training as a doctor, studying art history at Courtauld Institute where she completed an MA in Dutch and Flemish art, and studying fine art at the City Lit. She  works in both 2D and 3D and sees London, its buildings, trees and people as landscape, its history forming a palimpsest, its layers of occupation producing the complex mixture on which its current population live and work.


Recent works include paintings based on the patterns in the bark of London’s commonest tree, the plane; a tree which is both an iconic presence on London streets and, as a cross between the occidental and the oriental plane trees, a living symbol of the mixing of people and influences that is London.


Current work resolves around viewing London’s built environment as form expressed both in colour and black and white.
