Gallery 3

Susie Leahy Raleigh paintings endeavour to stimulate the senses and provoke an intoxicating affect in the viewer. A dynamic energy is portrayed, psychedelic and iridescent inks are poured onto Perpex without constraint. The paintings are informed by the artist’s personal response to atmospheric phenomena, altered states of mind and consciousness. Returning to red gallery for her second exhibition this new body of work explores the psychedelic, symmetry and new ideas of intention and control, is the pouring technique spontaneous or planned? Whilst intending to be whimsical does the sub-conscious actually have a plan?
