It’s safe to say that Suzannah Sinclair is one of my favorite painters. It’s not just because she paints hot naked women, though I’m sure that doesn’t hurt. Using vintage magazines as photo reference, she paints a mood and a scene all at once.

Is the subject sad? lonely? bored? playful? aloof? These are questions the viewer is inevitably left asking. The paintings are done on wood panels, and often the wood grain shows though the paint, or parts of the image are left intentionally blank so the background becomes part of the image. The organic nature of the canvas lends itself nicely to the figurative work. The brush strokes are delicate and thoughtful and bring to life emotion and curiosity.
I can’t post any more photos because of the racy nature of the work. I can say that they are tasteful nudes and it’s nothing I would consider pornographic. Click here to see more images
This is only her second solo show and it offers a great sign of things to come. Camilo Alvarez, the owner of samson projects , says “He’s happy to have a few of her original drawings in this exhibit as well, as they offer insight into her process and act as studies for the finished products”.
