About Susan Dory

Susan Dory creates abstract paintings which investigate issues of repetition, variation, and time. Her biomorphic and linear shapes congregate and reorganize in complex, structured patterns across a seemingly space-less field.

By overlapping translucent shapes, she creates a layering effect that consequently serves as a visual document of time. This effect not only allows viewers to see through one shape and into another, it also creates a distinct, tactile quality to the pristine surfaces of her paintings.

Dory has received both national and local awards including the Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant, the Willard R. Espy Foundation Artist-in-Residence Fellowship and the Behnke Foundation’s Neddy Artist Fellowship.
