"WARPED WOMEN," (COLLAGE, MIXED-MEDIA PAINTING) by SUSAN BEE
Location: Red Bedroom, Pygmalion-Second Floor

NINTH MENTION DUE TO UPDATE]

UPDATE:


Susan Bee is profiled in the May issue of Brooklyn Rail; click on excerpt below for whole article:

Her methods bear a strong relationship to the work of poets and filmmakers who use fragments and collage, yet, as she says, “retain a lyrical voice amid scattered narrative elements.” She also looks to historically important collage artists such as Kurt Schwitters, Max Ernst, John Heartfield, Robert Rauschenberg, and Hannah Hoch, as well as contemporary practitioners of the form. Her passion for collage, however, is hardly in competition with her desire to paint: “I do love the liquidity and unpredictability of oil painting, so it is my mission to meld these two unlikely partners.”

What's interesting is how the article focuses, too, on Susan's brilliant colorist skills -- the same thing I picked up on HERE in writing about living with one of her paintings.
