SUSAN MARX
Modalities of Expression
October 10 - October 30, 2014
Opening Reception: Thursday October 16, 2014 6-8 PM
Susan Marx’s wildly colorful paintings are joyous translations of image into hue. Marx paints the outside world, working en plein air, with her feet on the grass, with an emphasis on paring down visual elements to concentrate on “color, light, and energy” - subjects which entice and engage the viewer, drawing them into a fresh and beautiful world. Marx describes her style as Abstract Impressionism, combining “the light of the Impressionists, the brilliant color of the Fauves and the energy of the Abstract Expressionists” to create shapes out of quick, assertive paint-filled strokes. Colors are not blended and the brushstroke length varies widely; she paints spontaneously with energy and emotion. Marx draws in color, using fast drying acrylics so that she can quickly capture her reaction to her “radical amazement at the visual world.”
