About the artistSue Charles has a BFA in painting from BU College of Fine Arts where teachers taught with an old school approach, much like trade school, the technical skills of a fine artist. Sue is inspired by such artists as Charles Eaton, William Chase, Fairfield Porter and Wolf Kahn to name a few. "A painting exists on many levels; it depicts light and space with a two dimensional pattern of color shapes, and it expresses ideas and emotions, it is thought made visible. Finding the intersection between these ways of perceiveing is my goal. A good painting contains only the essentials and it stays with you like a hummable melody, I aim for that."
