About

The frame dimensions are 53.5cm high x 77cm wide. The visible artwork dimensions are 34.5cm high x 58.5cm wide (13.6inches high x 23inches wide). The artwork is signed lower right. Sue Pomery Wilks was brought up in Falmouth in Cornwall. Her father was a talented amateur artist and she quickly absorbed the principles of perspective, light and perspective. Although she wanted to become an artist she initially trained as a nurse. She nevertheless continued to paint for her own enjoyment and sold her works to friends and colleagues. When her own children were at school she joined local art classes and studied life drawing. She did not however feel able to study full time until her daughters went to university. As a mature student Pomery Wilks undertook a sculpture degree course at Carmarthen College of Art and Design. After graduating she took up painting seriously and has found commercial success. Her artwork, in which she excels in a number of media, reflect her understanding of three-dimensional form and texture. It has been said that her paintings can be read like braille. The predominant subject of her works is Pembrokeshire, whether this is its coastline, or its cottages and farms, or the communities and animals that live there. Sue Pomery Wilks has produced works for a number of exhibitions in west Wales centred around the Tenby area. This large charcoal and pastel on paper work depicts a flock of sheep. They are portrayed not as individual animals but as a communal entity, almost moving and breathing as one. There is a wonderful texture about the piece, and the bodies of the sheep almost merge into the hills beyond. The application of pastel is highly effective and skilled.
