With lines and colors darting across the canvas, Susan Dory’s paintings teem with energy. She layers fields of acrylic paint, creating senses of both depth and density in her canvases. Dory’s earlier works created the impression of movement through horizontal bands of color in capsule-like forms that appear to shift and pulsate. In recent work she has abandoned this horizontality, focusing instead on her interest in street art, with vivid and overlapping forms that suggest the style-over-message content of graffiti. Her chromatic figures weave up, down, and across the canvas, creating skeins of bold lines that accentuate their layers and depth.
