The Art Portfolio of Painter Susan Horn
Prescott Bridge II, oil on canvas
Painter Susan Horn captures abstract, landscape, and still-life subjects in a confident, impressionistic style. The artist’s current portfolio represents a prolific artistic career and is packed with paintings that consistently display the artist’s style.
In our previous feature of Susan’s delightfully impressionistic works, we looked at the way the artist utilizes evidence of her own hand as a part of the process, imbuing each work with an intimate, personal quality. I find this a great way to lend extra meaning to works like landscapes and still-lifes -- though anyone may be able to see a particular region or object, it’s being able to see it through Susan’s artistic eye that makes these works interesting.
I love the way that the soft-edged but uniform brush marks blend together on the canvas, creating a look that’s quite smooth at a distance and a little more textured up close.
