Susan Spies - Room 228

Color, tone and hue predominate these works that exploit the inherent movement of oil paint. My process begins with color, building up layers opacity and translucence to explore the subtleties and range of tone. The complexities and richness supersede the constrained palette. These layered, atmospheric spaces flow through tonal shifts until they intersect. These juxtapositions further enhance the color dynamics and create ambiguous places. The abstract environments created illustrate spaces that always captivate me; the places where man and nature, land and sky, and reality and perception intersect.
