Sue TooheySue Toohey

I have been interested for some time in how to depict the flow of water in a medium like linocut that lacks the fluidity of oils or water colour. Urban waterways like Johnston’s Creek, now confined within the walls of a stormwater channel, seem to provide a metaphor for this dilemma.

Works in Eco-Annandale-2012

My work is inspired by unusual forms in nature. The biochemistry of life forms is reflected by the randomness of the medium as it develops under extreme conditions. The result is neither positive of negative but takes the viewer into a powerful and strange land. Works in Eco-Annandale 2011

My work, in Eco-Annandale 2009, was inspired by organic patterns of mangrove roots, reflection of shallow water across static land; and the patterns of light and shadow along the shoreline while walking and taking photos in Tambourine Bay Reserve. Eco-Annandale 2010 Works.
