Sue Baker Kenton

Sue Baker Kenton is an artist-educator based in North Buckinghamshire.

The subject of Sue’s etchings and lithographs is expressed in a representational way, often beginning with making marks and through them, interrogating appearances. These representational works are channels by which Sue expresses her ideas and interest in the figure in historical and contextual imagery, in literature and the interior landscape of her sitters. Sue is preoccupied with the interaction between, and the relationships of, those around her and the universal that can be found in this particular.

Sue uses the process of print as an important part of her creative journey but has never been interested in producing limited editions. She comments, ‘It is about the resistance offered by the materials and processes. It is that one step of removal from the work. The final image is not the arena where the work was formed. The printmaking process demands directness.’

She was AiR at Leicester Print Workshop 2012 – 2013, leading Practical Dialogue, a collaborative print project. For further details, please visit the project archive page on the website.

Recent projects include: Ghost[ed.] a collaborative stone lithography project recently acquired by the word and image department at V&A Museum.

Sue is currently printmaking fellow at Royal Academy Schools (2016-2018), she is a specialist tutor on UAL’s Foundation in Art and Design at City Lit and part of the tutor team at Leicester Print Workshop.
