Color and all its subtleties and possibilities sits at the center of Susan English’s work. Sea glass blues, grays, and jewel toned pinks and greens spread in soft washes across her canvases. English works in tinted polymers to create luminous surfaces that change with the light and in relation to the viewer in space. Her abstract paintings stem from an intuitive relationship to color and space, and their composition and spiritual undertones evoke the work of famed color field painter Mark Rothko. She received an MFA from Hunter College in New York City and a BA from Hamilton College, Clinton, NY. She lives and works in Cold Spring, NY.
