Wendy Sussman


During Wendy Sussman's intense, interrupted career, the talented painter exemplified extraordinary commitment to the painted image, earning the admiration of fellow painters and inspiring many devoted students. Her canvases are usually large, sometimes ten feet long, with masterfully textured surfaces of mainly one color: gray, cobalt blue or white. Sussman’s richly painted, nearly abstract fields are often inhabited by a small head, the figure of a toy medieval jousting horse, or a small demon. These images are dwarfed by the vastness of the picture plane.
