November’s Emerging Artist: Susan Ford
in The ArtsCenter’s Corridor
Artist’s Statement: “I rediscovered my childhood interest in painting while attending Pharmacy School at the Medical College of Virginia in Richmond, Virginia. Rather than focus solely on scientific coursework, I found a creative outlet at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts Studio School, where I began painting with oils. I continued to pursue oil painting during my Pharmacy Fellowship at UNC in 2000, when I began taking open studio classes at the The ArtsCenter in Carrboro. In 2010, a group of artist at GlaxoSmithKline began an annual art show, through which I have had the fortune of both entering work and designing displays for the event. Last summer, prior to our fifth annual show, I began taking classes more regularly at the Durham Arts Council, prioritizing painting in my life as a counterbalance to scientific work.
In my most recent work, I have focused on palette knife painting with thick, lustrous, textural strokes. I am inspired by portraits and human expression as well as dramatic landscapes. I try to capture a spirit or emotion in my paintings with both intensity and contrast.”
Opening Reception: Friday, November 13th, 6-8pm in the Nicholson Gallery and will be held in conjunction with the 2nd Friday ArtWalk. The exhibit will be on display November 1-30.
