About the artist
Sue Ironfield – takes up in a new form the tradition of panting
which emulates music, with its expressive language, in order to reach
a meaningful abstraction. She is stimulated by the qualities of intervals – octave,
fifth, third, etc. These emerge in the natural harmonic series or overtone
row. Intervals are the building-blocks of music and represent universal
principles of order-in –chaos.
These heartfelt abstractions become dynamic, with strong line and vibrant expressive colour, and are enriched by various symbolic allusions.
The simple number series of the intervals, 1 2 3 4 5 etc. with their crystalline forms, are then connected to the Fibonacci series, 1 2 3 5 8 etc., a formula for growth related to the Golden Section.
