Susannah Douglas’s Early Career and Style
Susannah has an MA from Wimbledon College of Art (2009–10) and a BA in Fine Art from Falmouth College of Art (2000–03). The artist references collaged material to create her intricate pencil drawings, bringing together myriad narratives and photographic conventions. The fragility of the drawn images and reconstruction of these stories complicates the relationship to originality whilst maintaining the nostalgic desire for something unique and hand-crafted.
Some selected exhibitions include: Anthology, Charlie Smith Gallery, London (2016); Contemporary Drawing from Britain, Xi’An, China (2016); Florence Trust Summer Show, London (2015); Idolatry, Charlie Smith Gallery, London (2014); Priseman Seabrook Collection of 21C Painting, Huddersfield Art Gallery (2014); The Future Can Wait and Saatchi’s New Sensations, Victoria House, London (2014); The Jerwood Drawing Prize London (2014); Party Favours, PAPER, Manchester (2014); The Griffin Art Prize, London (2013); The Jerwood Drawing Prize (2013). She lives and works in London.
