Susan Simpson Art
Silver Street Studios
My paintings are characterized by vibrant color, dramatic movement, and gestural mark-making, embodying strong references to the natural world. My inspiration is drawn from an internalized experience of nature which I want to convey. My process is both playfully intuitive and studied analysis. As each layer of a painting progress, I strive to be open to the painting going in a new direction and to be lost in surprising outcomes. Mixing my colors, I choose color palettes that are complex and unexpected. By working on the floor I am able to engage in a loose style using a variety of tools. I aspire for my work to be impassioned and mysterious; open to many interpretations.
