About

Susan Washington incorporates textile, thread, and vintage pattern paper into her painted mixed-media, abstract collage works, producing surfaces layered with textures, rich colors and expressive line work. Her influences include the work of the early Synthetic Cubists, Abstract Expressionists and the St. Ives School of Painters. Susan’s work has been represented Artspace Warehouse Los Angeles since 2016. Her artworks has been exhibited and collected internationally, including New York, Los Angeles and Shanghai. This monochrome 48 inch tall by 36 inch wide original artwork is wired and ready to hang. It is signed by the artist on the back of the artwork. The sides of the artwork are painted white and it doesn't require framing. Free local Los Angeles area delivery. Affordable shipping within Continental US and global shipping is available. A certificate of authenticity and hanging hardware are included. Susan Washington grew up in Brooklyn in a creative family. Her Japanese godmother and Sinophile father taught her sumi ink painting when she was seven. This was the beginning of a life involved in art and fashion. Susan worked in the fashion industry in New York for 15 years before relocating to the Pocono Mountains where she currently creates art alongside her husband, British artist Stephen Washington. “My recent work continues the exploration of shapes that originate in tailoring pattern pieces,” says Washington. “My works over time have become more structural in their compositions. I utilize textile cutouts which have been previously sewn and/or painted. I allow threads and frayed edges to act as ‘painterly’ gestures within a loose grid of contrasting shapes that jostle for position across the canvas. I enjoy the tensions where shapes meet and create negative space or where color overlaps and interacts.” Washington's modernist approach to cubism inspired artworks have gained international recognition with their asymmetrical geometric elements which combine to form a complex composition.
