Yorkshire Coast & Sea – Sue Nichol

The first time I met Sue, collecting paintings for the Old School Gallery from her studio, I fell hook, line and sinker for a painting hung high on her wall; The Great Wave (feature image above), inspired by Hokusai’s The Great Wave off Kanagawa, but absolutely a Sue Nichol, full of energy, power and life.

Painted in the moment, in my minds eye I could visualise the paint splashing around from Sue’s brush, mimicking the sea spray as the wave breaks. As I left, I knew I had to devise a cunning plan to somehow bring the Great Wave to landlocked upper Swaledale, and hence on that day the idea for an exhibition was born. Imagine my great delight when Sue emailed this week to say The Great Wave would be part of our Yorkshire’s Coast & Sea Exhibition.

Sue’s great inspiration is “the edges of land”, especially our North East Coast where she was born and visits whenever she can. Her passion and feeling for the coast, and sheer joy of painting, shines through in her art, and it’s an ongoing pleasure to showcase Sue’s work at the Old School.
