New York-based artist Susan Vecsey paints abstractions that are rooted in perception. Minimal and captivating, these universal images illuminate how color, sfumasto, and material can remind each viewer of an ethereal place, memory, or dream. Though closely resembling Color Field paintings, Vecsey’s work also presents what feel like peaceful meditations on landscapes.
Born in Somerville, New Jersey, in 1971, Susan Vecsey currently lives and works in New York City as well as East Hampton, New York. She earned her BA from Barnard College, Columbia University, and her MFA from the New York Studio School of Drawing, Painting, and Sculpture. Vecsey’s work is widely held in both public and private collections, including the Nassau County Museum, Roslyn, New York, the Greenville County Museum of Art, Greenville, SC, and Guild Hall Museum, East Hampton, NY. In 2012, Vecsey was a visiting artist at the American Academy in Rome.
