About

Susannah Nathanson

Hello, I’m Susannah and I have just taken the plunge and launched this etsy shop of my fine art greeting cards and Limited edition giclée prints. Welcome and I hope you enjoy!

I have been painting and drawing ever since I can remember and after graduating from Edinburgh in 2008 with an MA in fine art have been professionally pursuing a career in painting. I now live in London and work from a studio in an old building full of character which I share with a small collective of other artists. I have exhibited in numerous shows and art fairs and undertaken a wide variety of commissions, for more information about these please visit my website.

Narrative is central to my work and i’m constantly on the lookout for any object or creature that could be a suitable protagonist for a story. I am particularly inspired by old toys, both for their aesthetic qualities and the way they naturally engage the imagination. I grew up surrounded by my father’s diverse collection of diecast toys, which were clustered on shelves wherever one looked. A couple of years ago I began using them in my still lives, holding them up to the light and studying their extraordinary detail. These old diecast figures, unlike their later plastic counterparts, over time manage to accumulate a scratched and weathered patina, where the paint has flecked off leaving the metal beneath exposed in patches. This effect evokes a wonderful sense of something that has really ‘lived,’ much loved and played with. When painting them I have tried to pay homage to each toy’s own unique array of marks, textures and personality. Through this process I have come to appreciate them as objects of sculptural beauty that seem to excite, in adults and children alike, a sense of joy and emotional nostalgia.

I work mainly in oil on canvas, addicted to the rich colours and sense of depth they create. It has been my ambition for a long time to reproduce these effects on paper and introduce my paintings to the greetings card and fine art print market. With the help of the brilliant fine art photographers I work with we have managed to capture as closely as possible the textures and colours of my paintings. I am now producing them as giclée prints and cards, so no matter what your budget you can own a high quality reproduction that I hope packs the same punch as the original!

As I said I am just starting out and would love to hear from you, be it questions, feedback or a mutual enthusiasm for vintage toys and storytelling!
