Susan Gales body of work speaks to the tradition of landscape painting through a lense of contemporary experience. Based on both rural and urban Canadian locations, the unique beauty in each is captured by using a uniform, slightly abstract treatment.
Whether it's the architecturally lined streets of Toronto or a rural community in Newfoundland, Susan’s unique aesthetic is the dominant theme in her work. The overall essence of light, composition and movement are given the same treatment. By blending reality and interpretation Susan celebrates the common thread that unites people throughout Canada.
