susan o gordon

Susan creates abstract, non-representational paintings using acrylic paints on large canvas surfaces with dramatic colors. She began painting in 2003 — “I arrived late to the art party,” she says — with the intention of painting small portraits. However, after a lifetime devoid of drawing, painting, and the formal arts, she took a brush to canvas and experienced freedom with big canvases, big strokes, and bold colors of oranges, reds, and blacks.

Then Susan wanted to really feel what she was painting  — to connect directly from her heart, arms, and hands to the canvas. She put down her brush, dipped her hands in the paint, and touched the canvas — it was electrical. She found myself returning to the canvas more and more frequently. Susan is the founder of Art Center Ukiah.
