Sue Lovegrove: Cloud Memory - Art Collector

Sue Lovegrove, No. 523, 2013. Acrylic and gouache on linen, 60 x 40cm. Courtesy: the artist and Purgatory Artspace, Melbourne

Sue Lovegrove’s recent work visualises her experiences from wild and remote islands including Macquarie Island, Maatsuyker Islandl; and Tasman island - an uninhabited, windy, cliff-walled, isolated island off the South East coast of Tasmania. Cloud Memory focuses on the transitory nature of clouds; the way clouds take shape and then dissolve. The artist thinks of these forms as metaphors for states of being, quietly alluding to The Cloud of Unknowing, a 14th century religious text that presents a series of meditations on emptying out the mind.
