About

Candy Le Sueur is a painter and a printmaker. The inspiration for her work draws on imagery from the natural world, particularly light, clouds and sky. Pushed to a point of abstraction, the sensation of the work is mostly ethereal landscapes. Some feel slow and meditative like quiet spaces to drift into and daydream - away from the fast paced stimuli we are presented with each day. Others feel rapid and gestural - an attempt at capturing a fleeting moment. 

Process driven, Le Sueur deliberately builds each piece layer by layer, allowing her intuition to guide her through choices in color, form, and composition. By emphasizing space and depth, and delineating the picture plane, the artist presents these luminous renditions as landscapes. The layering of both her paintings and prints helps to achieve a push and pull between foreground and background creating movement and perspective. There is an ebb and flow within her body of work where these two elements are, at times, more and less. The artist oscillates between playing with atmospheric perspective and a more flattened picture plane through her use of techniques and application. Light washes, bold marks, tonal color, and vibrant hues echo throughout. 

Candy Le Sueur lives and works in Jersey City, NJ. She received her Fine Arts Degree from the University of Johannesburg in South Africa and continued her studies at the National Academy School and various printmaking studios in New York City. Le Sueur has exhibited her work in South Africa, Switzerland, Germany, and the United States. The National Academy Museum of New York, Jersey City Museum, the Affordable Art Fair, and Art Hamptons among other venues, have exhibited her paintings and monotypes. Her paintings are featured in several private collections both home and abroad.
