So describes the famous criticism: "Sue Kennington, despite a conceptual study of the art, (he studied at Goldsmiths) has been established in this remote place of Tuscany (Florence, ed) and has developed his own personal light sensitivity Italian.
Although she comes from a family of painters (it is the nephew of Eric Kennington, known for his portraits and images of the First World War) came late to the practice of painting, having worked as a set designer for many years. But even there, the main element of his work was light.
The transfer in Italy has enabled Sue Kennington to get away and go over a certain kind of celebratory painting (Bert Irving and Gillian Ayres as an example) letting go to a more romantic and expressive language made of glazes and geometric lines. By immersing themselves in the light and in the solitude of the Italian countryside, Sue Kennington was able to get away from the vocabulary of the Goldsmiths fragile despite having a deep awareness of contemporary debates about the nature of painting. This led to the idea of painting that is completely his own. A subtle vision and authentic. "
