Location Name: Herter Art Gallery

I am an interventionist, mining the space between painting and drawing. I explore the evolutionary nature of mark making and relationships between color, geometry, line and form. Through a pseudo scientific lens of inquiry and exploration I set up a situation on a paper like surface using the language of painting to improvise from. This is an arena in which pattern and form engage and accentuate the contradictions, opposites and contrasts that exist in this fabricated world.

Leverett Pond is a tiny walk from Susan's studio. She spent many a day on the water's surface, tooling around and being nurtured by the views, the creatures, the plant life. These vertical canvases arose from those experiences. Susan's intention is this exhibit be a respite from what is likely the most important issue of our political/social times. She'd like people to feel that they're in good company here in the valley, and that the job ahead of us is paramount but we need to take care of ourselves to be effective.
