Painting "Selves Portait" by Susan Paulson Clark, 2004
My art tells stories of new worlds and experiences with vibrant, often saturated, color. Layers affect a sense of depth ... the plot thickens. Interesting shapes, be they floating or exacting, effectuate inspired methodology.
As a free-spirited creative with an analytical streak, I'm fascinated by the interplay of emotion and logic. In my writing career, I covered human interest - but also business and technology. Likewise, my art shines with emotive color on a foundation of judicious composition. Feelings align with thought, structure compliments expressive beauty.
Let me celebrate the heart, elevate the mind, and create pieces that retell themselves with new twists in each subsequent viewing.
