Figure in White, 2007
Oil on Canvas
72” X 24”
Although the subject matter of Susan Grace’s paintings alternates between depictions of the human form and disintegration of rigid architectural structures, the theme of repeated fragmentation and influence of literature remains consistent throughout her work.
In her painting, Figure in White, the subject is easily identifiable as human, at first glance; however, the longer the viewer stares at the work the more they realize each limb is actually another object, form, or abstraction of the human body. The work, which undeniably portrays the female form, uses pictographs, script, and distorted objects to give the viewer a clue into the identity of the figure.
