Suzie MacKenzie is an artist printmaker working from a studio overlooking the Moray Firth. Her interest lies in drawing and printmaking, and how and where these two disciplines meet and overlap.
The predominant theme of her work is the landscape of the Scottish Highlands, always populated in some way – occasionally by people, sometimes by animals, most often by birds. Each of her images attempts to capture a location or fleeting moment of personal significance, aiming to connect with the viewer by expressing the universality of these beautiful and mysterious moments and places.
Most of her current output is collagraph printmaking, which with all its atmospheric possibilities seems the most fitting medium for conveying the beauty and mystery of these moments and places.
The most beautiful and deepest experience a man (sic) can have is the sense of the mysterious. It is the underlying principle of … all serious endeavour in art and science: Albert Einstein (from: The World As I See It, 1949)
