Susie David’s works are informed by water and other elements of the wild. This enquiry began during her Masters in Fine Art at The University of Plymouth. Eastern philosophies and Japanese aesthetics influence her practice, which she shares via exhibitions, publications, collaborations, residencies, lectures, workshops and online.

"Water informs my work and at times forms it directly; and although I have a regular studio practice I also have an outside practice, often at the water’s edge, among other such liminal zones. I make close observations, documenting with, for example, digital film, and I also make interactions and responses, using eco-friendly materials, resulting in drawings, material samplings, sculptures and text-based work."

"When I paint in the studio, I emulate water, and re-enact water happenings, whilst lightly holding an awareness of conveying this through my own particular — human — presence: I articulate a spontaneity of gesture, while allowing the play of indeterminacy, or chance, conferred by fluid pigment. The Eastern principle of Wu-wei is important in my practice — of action without forcing, thus, works are intended to be uncontrived and left raw with tell-tale traces of their making bearing witness to process."

"On the paper, panel or canvas a kind of visual music emerges out of this process painting, and although representation is not sought, echoes of seascapes might be found; however, it is fluidity itself that is the intrigue."
