Susan Hurrell-fieldes work is autobiographical, influenced to large extent by her life in New Zealand and her work in New York. Over the years she has accumulated a growing library of leitmotifs to express her world, these form the basis of her work. There is an element of the innate and instinctual, drawing is integral, showing the human hand and spirit in the work. A recent series draws on song lyrics for inspiration.
Hurrell-fieldes's artistic expression progresses from strength to strength. With various printmaking methods under her belt, she now employs mark making and painting in the these pieces. Her paintings are singly crafted, inked and constructed into unique combinations.
