Blue to Grey / Glas i Lwyd

Sue Draper

 

I consider myself very fortunate to live in Pembrokeshire, where the sea, sky and surrounding hills are constantly on display. We are reminded of their presence every day, by the changeable weather, and its effect on our lives.

For me, last summer and into the autumn, felt light, bright and very blue. We have since moved into the rain and grey of winter. And my goodness, didn't it rain! So my paintings have passed from blue to grey.

Grey is neither dull nor sad, just a different time of year. A time for quiet and reflection; for log fires and looking out of the window, or going to the beach to watch a stormy, grey sea.

My paintings are always laden with texture. I feel it contributes to the depth and structure of the images that I am creating.

Texture also makes these pieces very tactile, so please feel free to run your hands across their surface.

There is one painting here which is suggestive of snow. Of course, there has been no snow to speak of here this winter … but I saw it in my mind's eye.

Ystyriaf fy hun yn ffodus iawn i fyw yn Sir Benfro, lle gwelir y mor, yr awyr a'r bryniau cyfagos yn gyson. Cawn ein hatgoffa o'u presenoldeb bob dydd, gan y tywydd cyfnewidiol, a'i heffaith ar ein bywydau.

I mi, 'roedd yr haf diwethaf ac i mewn i'r hydref, yn teimlo'n ysgafn, yn llachar ac yn las iawn. Ers hynny rydym wedi symud i'r glaw a'r gaeaf llwyd. A dyna beth oedd glaw! Felly mae fy mhaentiadau wedi symud o las i lwyd.

Nid yw llwyd yn ddiflas nac yn drist, dim ond adeg wahanol o'r flwyddyn.

Amser tawel a myfyrio; am dan cynnes ac edrych allan drwy'r ffenest, neu mynd i'r traeth i wylio'r mor, stormus, llwyd.

Mae'r lluniau, bob amser yn llawn gwead, rwy'n teimlo ei fod yn cyfrannu at ddyfnder a strwythur y delweddau yr wyf yn eu creu.

Mae gwead bob amser yn gwneud y darnau yma'r gyffyrddol iawn, felly mae croeso i chi redeg eich dwylo ar draws eu harwyneb.

Ceir un paentiad yma sy'n awgrymu eira. Wrth gwrs, does dim eira wedi bod y gaeaf hwn…ond fe'i gwelais yn llygad fy meddwl.
