The Trouble with Clouds documents Sue Hutton’s enchantment with encaustic processes. After working with the spontaneous, carefree nature of digital drawing, Hutton’s work has turned towards the slower pace of building up layers with a lovely translucence that can only be achieved in wax.
Hutton is a multi-disciplinary artist whose practice flows between drawing, print-making, small assemblages, photography and ceramics. Showcased in exhibitions both in Australia and overseas, her work engages the audience with its creative narrative and whimsical nature.
