Susan Colwell, Artist

 
ARTIST STATEMENT
"For me, a painting often begins with a rich color and simply begins to evolve on its own and   
I seem to be part of the process, a process that is ongoing and never complete." Large, loose,
vibrant brush strokes and juicy color typify Susan's abstract impressionist paintings.
She has been described as "an intuitive, atmospheric painter intent upon capturing a
mood". "I try to recreate the subtleties and nuances of light in fragile, fleeting moments."

        "I am moved by the ever-changing light and atmosphere in the Lowcountry and I strive to recreate the feeling or mood of a place or moment.  The subtleties of light, reflections on the water, and the softness I see and feel in the landscape greatly influence me.  The subject is never foremost in my mind...it is always about the feeling.  Many times a painting begins with a rich color and it simply evolves on its own and I seem to be just a part of the process, a process that is ongoing and never complete." 

        Large, loose impetuous strokes and juicy color typify Susan's abstract-impressionist oil paintings. "I try to recapture my feelings about a place by using color and form, producing a presence of space, mood, and light." 

        Susan is represented by galleries in South Carolina, North Carolina, Georgia, and Virginia and her work hangs in private and corporate collections throughout the country.
