"Chelsea #2" by Susan Washington
Washington worked in the NYC fashion industry for 15 years. Her paintings reflect her history with tailoring, pattern pieces and threads as she cuts, rips and assembles painted textiles into compositions that explore the relationships between shapes and where loose threads and torn edges find new meaning as expressive line. She likes to work big and her recent work demonstrates a love and understanding of the early work of the Synthetic Cubists, Abstract Expressionists and the St. Ives School of Painters and in particular, Rauschenberg, Twombly and Ben Nicholson along with the collage artist Conrad Marca-Relli. This piece also works as a diptych with Chelsea 1 (see additional photos).
