Sue-Del McCulloch is a painter working in a range of subjects and media with a concentration in regional landscapes in oil or acrylic on canvas. McCulloch’s landscapes explore light and the effects of light in organizing earth, air and water into image and atmosphere. One reviewer described her landscapes as filled with “lush luminosity; mysterious and powerful. In each work, one finds an animated dialogue between light and dark, atmosphere and earth, and a reverence for the emerging form.
Sue-Del McCulloch grew up in eastern Oregon where her feelings for great open spaces, light, sky and rocks were nurtured. In recent years her studio has been sited on a hillside in country with an expansive view of sky, providing constant exposure to the phases of illumination, weather and season that inform her work. McCulloch was a painting major at the University of Oregon; later studying with master landscape artist Carl Hall at Willamette University. Her work is in public and private collections across the nation.
