Becky Suss – An Artist’s Dwelling (18)

Becky Suss, a contemporary figurative painter, was born in Philadelphia in 1980 where she currently lives and works. She holds a BA from Williams College and an MFA from the University of California, Berkeley. She is a member of Vox Populi, and a former member of Space 1026, she is currently represented by Fleisher Ollman gallery.  She often explores the ennui of vacant spaces and the energy of empty interiors. Her canvases hint at folk patterns and modern architecture.

In the series above, Suss plays with stark geometric angles, sculptural vases ala Morandi, the natural patterns of house plants, and midcentury modernism. The bric-a-brac captures the edited eccentricity of homes.
