Susanne du Toit – People

Susanne du Toit - People at Pasmore Gallery

I took time out today to go the exhibition of the 2013 BP Portrait Award winner Susanne du Toit at the Pasmore Gallery in Harrow School.

Those who actually read what I post will know that I said her winning picture of Pieter was not my favourite from last year’s award. But now that I have had a chance to view that piece among a selection of others I am much more impressed than I was a year ago. There is a simplicity to her work which brings out the character of the sitter. I’m really surprised how inspiring this fine collection of portraits is.

If you get a chance, do go and check it out. It is on until 10 December 2014 and the opening times are Monday to Friday 9 am to 6 pm, Saturday 2 to 6 pm and Sunday 2 to 5 pm.
