Susan Erony (Boston MA 1949 -)


Susan Erony’s mixed-media paintings engage history and the human condition, bearing witness to the dignity of the oppressed, the dispossessed, and all of us who face sorrow or pain in the course of life. The beauty in her work is a refuge in a troubling world, even as it compels us, within its safe embrace, to remain mindful of the suffering which gives love its importance.

Her abstract paintings and those having general subjects bear strong emotions in their organic textures and make specific engagements with their titles. Other paintings gesture to the universal through the intimate specificity of the subject. Her paintings employ conventional art materials is unexpected ways, and often employ unconventional materials having conceptual significance.
