About

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.
