About

Abstract figurative Deconstructionist watercolor painting of figures in a piazza in Lucca, Italy with a cool grey and blue palette "Shoppers in Lucca", painted by Susan Hope Fogel in 2020 22 x 30 inches unframed, archival watercolor and gouache on 300 lb. Arches paper 28 x 37 inches with a dark silver frame and non-glare glass Signed, lower right Excellent condition, ready to hang as is This contemporary figurative watercolor painting was created by Hudson Valley artist, Susan Hope Fogel, in 2019. This expressionist inspired abstraction is composed of fragmented brushstrokes in a cool blue and grey palette that are softly blended together to create a misty or shadowy bleeding effect. Soft outlines of figures shopping in the Italian piazza fade into the background as if pictured in a kind of dreamscape. In some areas, wet paint is left to drip down the paper, further abstracting the image. The archival watercolor and gouache drawing is on sturdy 300 lb. Arches paper with deckled edges and is framed with a dark silver frame with non-glare glass. About the artist: After spending many years painting in the style of traditional realism , Susan had the opportunity to work with Paul Ching-Bor to explore a new form of expression in Deconstructionist Watercolor. Working in New York City with a group of large scale watercolorists, Susan soon found herself fascinated by the experimental quality of this new media. A great departure from the world of realism this media allowed for great freedom of expression creating from an intuitive place, deep within, instead of inspiration from the outside world. The focus of her work has now shifted to large scale watercolor painting with an emphasis on abstraction of landscape and cityscape. Susan has studied in art schools in New York City including: classical drawing at The New York Academy of Art, figure and portrait painting at The Art Students League and The National Academy of Design. She credits John Philip Osborne for developing her painter’s eyes at The Ridgewood Art Institute.
