Susan Bee: Putting Paint to the Test

Image coming soon.

Lori Zimmer reviews the exhibition Susan Bee: Criss Cross: New Paintings at Accola Griefen Gallery, New York, on view through June 29, 2013.

Zimmer writes: "Using scenes from classic cinema as inspiration, Susan Bee’s new body of work puts her medium to the test: with her painterly brushstrokes and jabs competing with the pictorial film stills as the subjects of her paintings… the artist has taken on the impassioned glances and forlorn stares of the silver screen, but removed them from the vintage glamour of chiaroscuro. With purposeful movement and motion evident in her painting, Bee has given each classic scene vibrancy with over the top color, translating each movie embrace into an abstraction of color and form."
