Lines and Grids: The Lost Decade and Beyond
Contemporary Arts Museum Houston
August 20 – November 27, 2016
From the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston:
Susie Rosmarin’s paintings are born out of strategies to defy the two-dimensional frame. Her ability to achieve the dynamism of optical illusions is rooted in her extraordinary talents to affect movement with both color and composition. Her use of mathematical formula in the creation of her paintings and sculpture enables her to create by hand layered patterns and color that seem machine generated.
While her work has been appropriately situated within the spectrum of Op Art, she is a methodical landscape painter whose abstract compositions echo traditions of light and color. This exhibition brings together works created at various stages of her career, allowing audiences to experience the evolution of her craft. Envisioned as a mini-survey, the exhibition spans a thirty-year period but focuses on Rosmarin’s early work in painting, sculpture, and photography from 1988 to 2000. Additional works from subsequent decades, including the artist’s most recent digital generated works, are featured in the exhibition.
