Patricia Prescott Sueme
Archival Digital Prints
Southern California-based graphic designer and artist Patricia Prescott Sueme is a friend of NUMU, having played a key role in directing the Museum’s recent rebranding campaign. Patty graduated from ArtCenter College of Design in Pasadena in 1985. After building a successful career in graphic design, she returned to painting. Her body of work is comprised of pared down, idealized imagery with bold, uncomplicated compositions, combining old world oil on board glazing techniques with a graphic eye for color and composition. Patty combines her design background and her understanding of technology to control every aspect of her prints including tuning color, and playing with cropping, image size and paper texture.
About the Series at NUMU:
Central and Nor Cal inspired works. I work from photos I’ve taken as well as photo scrap as inspiration to build what’s in my head. I have a passion for expansive skies, reflective water, gnarly trees, shadows and light, open vistas, and I am drawn to uncomplicated compositions with a specific color palette. Some prints were scanned from oil on board, other prints are from recent pastel paintings. Original Oils were painted about 10 years ago (prints of oils have only been made for a couple years), pastels were created over past few months and originals may be available for sale. I don’t plan to work in oil again now that I have discovered pastel. It’s a blast and allows me more freedom. Pastel works are scanned at extremely high resolution and can be enlarged to produce highly detailed, large scale prints, revealing pastel strokes and layers of colors sometimes not visible to the naked eye on the originals.
