Susan's work explores the nostalgia of community by highlighting the juxtapose between the peaceful, quiet mystery of light and the rush of visually invoked sensation. She explores the sensibility that an image evokes by manipulating form, surface and palette to exaggerate each painting's elements of color, framing and texture. By employing rich hues and playful pixilation, her work seeks to investigate a space between abstraction and representation that allows for a rich direct language of mark making.
Susan's unique aesthetic is the dominant theme in her work. Her practice involves capturing cityscapes and images of everyday places and assigning them a subjective graphic meaning. In this form of expression, gestures and shapes start to invoke a feeling of being transported to these places. Susan works the images through a lens of emotion and brings beauty and form back to their most simple compositional elements.
Susan Gale has been painting for over 15 years. She studied at NSACD from 2000 to 2004 and has been exhibiting consistently since.
