Using charcoal and pastel to create her luminous, shimmering drawings, Susan Grossman absorbs our attention irrevocably. A cinematic quality radiates 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. For this exhibition, she created a series of drawings of Charlotte, based on a trip to the city in the summer of 2009.
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.
