Barb Suttie connects us to the power of Nature's dramatic atmospheric effects and leads us into panoramic vistas that beg us to enter. She skillfully presents us with windows in time from the Caldera Region and other beautiful places. Her paintings evoke a sense of place, a belonging, a strong but gentle and intimate connection to the timeless, but constantly changing environment of the region in which she lives and works.
She extracts the atmosphere from its untouchable distance and paints it right there for you as a tangible, connecting and reflective collaboration of light, space and time.
This book, a collection of oil paintings by Barb Suttie is a reminder of the splendour of the Tweed Valley and other beautiful places. These paintings are the artist's legacy from the region that has bequeathed us all the Caldera Gifts.
