until 21.05. | #3372ARTatBerlin | Galerie Schindler in Potsdam presents from 24 March 2022 the exhibition Equinox with works by the artist Sue Hayward.

Born in Brisbane in 1962, artist Sue Hayward finds her inspirational source in the endless stories about the human condition and, in particular, the relationship between people and the environment. She grew up in Australia, where she was able to develop a special affinity for nature. The artist often uses plants, animals, and especially birds in her work as symbols of the various aspects of human expression. She is often concerned with loss and the longing for unity that manifests itself in nature, for example.

Hayward works in a variety of media, sculpture, installations and especially painting, where she seeks to create new dimensions of perception and imagery by incorporating transparent areas into the canvas. The use of gauze, inserted into the surface of the painting, allows for the creation of transparent elements, creating a new kind of pictorial space where light and shadow are processed in a completely different way from the opacity of the canvas.

A second layer, placed in the frame of the color support a few centimeters behind the transparent, creates an optical displacement of the figures or surfaces depicted, depending on the position of the viewer. This creates a dynamic three-dimensionality that cannot be conveyed photographically and must be experienced personally. The space between these two layers gains significance and conveys the transient, elusive aspect of the human condition. Thus, on the one hand, the transient, fleeting nature of existence finds expression, and on the other, the position of the viewer is questioned and redefined.

Sue Hayward developed the application of paint over an extended period of time. She makes a putty (painting butter) from beeswax and damar, which is mixed with pigments or oil paints and applied in many layers mostly with a palette knife. Due to the admixture of wax, the paint appears matte and very tactile, also because it is repeatedly scraped off and reapplied. The rather coarser painted surface contrasts clearly with the transparent plane and gives the figures a special delicacy and vulnerability.
