Susan Grossman absorbs our attention irrevocably with her luminous, shimmering drawings, The monochromatic work glows with a cinematic quality through flashes of color that the artist couples with strong compositional and perspectival effects.
Grossman most often explores the streets of New York City, camera in hand, to capture her imagery. She works from masses of still photographs, selecting choice components from many images to form the resulting drawing. Scenes are composed with a balance of frenetic strokes and smoothing, blending rubs.
Susan Grossman earned a BA from Bennington College in 1981 and a MFA from Brooklyn College in 1988. She has taught at City College of New York and is currently teaching drawing at the National Academy School of Fine Arts.
