Student Artwork Update: Susan Conrad

August 10th, 2015

We’re proud to present SVACE student artwork by Susan Conrad! Susan has taken our Fine Arts courses taught by Peter Hristoff, Seth Michael Forman, Charles Yoder, and John Parks.  See Susan’s work in our display cases at 209 East 23rd Street until September 1st!


From her artist’s statement:

“Susan Conrad is an impressionistic, expressionistic, coloristic painter. Recently her painting has evolved into a more personal expression. She uses life events, emotions and story to produce internal landscapes that are joyful and disturbing, colorful and dark. Her art conveys transformation out of pain, isolation and fear into freedom, connectedness and hope. These diametrically opposing elements frequently occur simultaneously. Optimistic bright, happy colors and shiny metallics mix with uncontrolled, mysterious black or dark imagery. Without dark there can be no light. This interesting juxtaposition embodies the universal spiritual journey.”
