These 5 paintings are from work shown by painter Susan Dory who I first discovered on Daily Serving on a June 20, 2007 post and was taken at once by the colour and composition of her work. Daily Serving writes "Dory creates formalist paintings that often investigate memory, private life and the notion of sentimentality through the application of colour. Her paintings are characteristically minimal, employing elements of repetition and restraint.The artist is interested in how colour evokes certain emotions and how colours can be manipulated to elicit certain psychological responses".
I find these works particularly engaging. 'Purlieu' is quite arresting the way the colours are heightened by their relationship to those surrounding them...that particular green band really sings wholeheartedly when a line of red sits so close. Thanks Susan for allowing me to post these wonderful paintings!
