About the Artist
Susan Marx is an Abstract Impressionist artist whose paintings are the result of her radical amazement at the beauty of the visual world and her own need to filter that experience through herself. Using nature as her frame of reference, Marx is concerned with light and its effect on color. Her paintings are the conversations between her eyes, her mind, her heart, and her gut as well as the canvas in front of her.

Marx uses fast-drying acrylic paints which allow her to record her color impressions quickly, painting with thick, bold, rich colors and gestural brushstrokes. She leaves parts of the canvas blank intentionally, in order to create more contrast and tension between the color and the blank canvas, allowing the painting and the viewer’s eye to breathe. This process often also allows the painting to form a controlled explosion on the canvas within the picture plane. By putting color next to color, she captures the essence of her subject, leaving the rest to the viewer's imagination, drawing them into and engaging them through her process. She hopes her artwork will lead people to notice the beauty in nature.
