Cloud Howe by Susan McMahon
Acrylic & ink
1993
139 x 208 cm

Reg. Number: P368

This acrylic & ink on paper piece is a strong and impressive landscape work. The nimbus cloud occupies almost the entire image, only leaving a narrow sea level on the bottom. Between the sea and the sky, there is some faint landscape. The orange toned sky strengthens the sense of volume and vitality of the cloud, which indicates a possible upcoming storm.

Born in 1972, Susan McMahon studied in Edinburgh College of Art from 1989 to 1993 and gained her BA(Hons) in Painting. She recieved a Hospitalfield Scholarship in 1993. Her works were exhibited in the Boathouse Gallery, Dunoon in 1992 and Royal Scottish Academy Students Exhibition in 1993.
