Exhibit Title
Vinegar Painting: From Faux Graining to Modern Art - by Susan Isabel Dworkin
Exhibit Description
Susan Isabel Dworkin has been experimenting with colonial painting techniques for twenty years. Her current endeavor is adapting vinegar painting from its traditional use on flat wooden surfaces to other mediums. To date, she remains one of the pioneers in this venture, continually exploring and adapting the technique via artist board, foam core, metal, paper, glass, and mirror. The nature of vinegar paint produces a multilayered spectrum which combines elements of impressionism, surrealism and lyrical abstractionism. “To work with vinegar paint you must open yourself to communing with the desires of the paint and flow with it.” Her paintings are suggestive of rich landscapes and fantasy realms that allow the viewer to formulate their own personal vision. In some of her previous lives, Susan received a BA in Biology, an MPA, and was a private estate gardener in Rhode Island and Massachusetts. She finds color inspiration from those gardens and settings, as well as her many travels. Susan has lived in Lexington, Kentucky since 1989.
