Today's featured artist is Susan Sadoury.
Susan Sadoury (°1948, Spokane, United States) makes paintings and drawings. By choosing mainly formal solutions, Sadoury formalizes the coincidental and emphasizes the conscious process of composition that is behind the seemingly random works. The thought processes, which are supposedly private, highly subjective and unfiltered in their references to dream worlds, are frequently revealed as assemblages.
Her paintings feature coincidental, accidental and unexpected connections which make it possible to revise art history and, even better, to complement it. Combining unrelated aspects lead to surprising analogies. By experimenting with aleatoric processes, she creates intense personal moments masterfully created by means of rules and omissions, acceptance and refusal, luring the viewer round and round in circles.
Her works are based on formal associations which open a unique poetic vein. Multilayered images arise in which the fragility and instability of our seemingly certain reality is questioned. By applying abstraction, she tries to develop forms that do not follow logical criteria, but are based only on subjective associations and formal parallels, which incite the viewer to make new personal associations.

Her works doesn’t reference recognisable form. The results are deconstructed to the extent that meaning is shifted and possible interpretation becomes multifaceted.
Susan told us that she has been painting on and off for 40 years with a few classes along the way, several at Edmonds community college, with Gene Waggoner Marysville, Wa and others. She was with the Maryville Art Guild for several years. Her newest passion is for abstracts, finding the freedom, the colors and the strokes wonderful.

Painting abstracts fulfills her totally and she has fallen in love with it. Join her on her journey as she explores the many techniques of abstract and go back often to see what new wonders she has discovered. May you enjoy them as much as Susan does making them.
