Bold, textural and modern. Susan is a Canadian contemporary abstract artist known for her rich, seductive colours and textures. She uses the contrast between brazen abstract shapes and soft tactile material to build her foundation. Every element evokes emotion and memory from the viewer. The surface reveals multiple layers of materials, flirting with sculptural marks. She relentlessly explores modern processes and materials including fluid pouring, scraping, extrusion. At first bringing forward uncertainty, it soon turns into curiosity at the depth of the pieces and the temptation to reach out and touch the painting.
Susan was chosen by Sebastien Laboureau as a “Must See Artist,’’ during her solo debut at Art Basel Week in Miami. International Art Magazine has awarded an honourable mention for the International abstract/experimental challenge with this series published in the American Art Collector.
