LBQ Artist Exhibition: Suzie Pindar
Have you heard of Suzie Pindar? Suzie is an LBQ artist who lives in London. She is known as The Naked Artist and her work is extremely personal.
We popped along last night after dinner at Labels to find out more about one of her exhibitions in July 2014.
On arrival you can really tell Suzie’s style; a handwritten biography explaining what she does hangs on the wall along with a brown label like those used in the war to label children which has her telephone number in case anyone wants to get in touch.
We were lucky enough to get some time with Suzie to discuss some of her work, and she explained that much of what she does is inspired by life and is a reflection, often somewhat self-critical or analytical, of herself.
We asked Suzie what her three favourite inspirations in life were for her art, and although we can imagine this will change, at the moment it is reflections, architecture and footwear.
The exhibition at Bar Titania is made up by a mixture of methods. Screen printing is an area which Suzie previously enjoyed, and is currently re-visiting and there is a striking print with a yellow background on display.
Photography is another medium Pindar uses in a mixed format, combining images with words.
In addition to this exhibition, Suzie also has a collection of art on display at the Tri Space Gallery in Bermondsey as part of a shared exhibition there until 16 July.
This is more of an art space, so Suzie’s work on display includes collages, including one that is made out of her CV in her frustration at job hunting, although again – showing Suzie’s positive outlook on life, there is strip of green across the eyes which she says reflects growth.
A number of the prints and photographs in Suzie’s exhibition are available for sale. In addition to those on the wall, she has many more available and her artist scrapbook gives more insight into what is available.
We were very happy to go home with a stunning photo print which will look amazing in our study and a wish list of a few more! If you like art, and enjoy supporting the LBQ community, don’t miss this exhibition!
Editors note: Suzie will also have a selection of her work on display in Planet Central at LFest (18-21 July) for those not so local who are interested.
Date attended: July 2014
