About

Gold Coast Hinterland artist, Susan Skuse, draws her inspiration from the natural beauty of the rainforest scenery and its wildlife. "The aim of my painting is the appreciation of the natural world as a unity in which we are not objective observers, but an integral and undifferentiated part. For me, this involves painting in a realistic style and with an attachment to place. In Zen Buddhism there is a term, kensho, which implies a momentary enlightenment wherein one “sees nature” and also sees one’s own nature, with the sense that there is no duality between the ‘seer’ and the ‘seen’. My goal is for in painting is to open the door to a such an experience.
