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.
Various printmaking methods have been employed in the making of these pieces. Hurrell-fieldes is currently drawn to dry-point etching, in this case on Mylar or aluminium. Her pieces are singly inked then processed through the press and individually constructed into unique combinations. There is no way two pieces can be the same.
