Susan Tolbert Abstract Paintings
Susan Tolbert was originally a realist painter but working from observation was limiting due to what she could actually see and working from the flattened record of reality captured by a camera became a bore. She eventually began using a variety of collage techniques to create abstract paintings. Susan states “As a citizen of the consumer culture, I have succumbed to art making that is dependent on the constant shopping for and hoarding of printed images. I shop the art magazines of the last 20 years, snipping and clipping.” After enlarging the collage, Susan creates an underpainting then begins the task of reproducing in oil each little scrap of paper as close to the original as possible.
