TEW Galleries is pleased to present Seattle- based artist, Susan Dory.
Susan Dory is a process-oriented painter who begins each painting without a preconceived image in mind. Instead, she starts with a concept that has developed from reading, digesting visual information, and her interest in the spiritual world as well as a color palette she wants to explore. She works flat and uses acrylic paint at about the viscosity of house paint and clear acrylic medium. The first step in the process is to brush paint onto the canvas in a pattern or shapes that reflect her original idea. Then she pours on clear coat, a type of acrylic varnish, to seal it. The ideas develop throughout each layer and this process continues until the painting is completed.
Final works may have twenty or more layers.
