Susan Washington seamlessly blends modern textiles, delicate threads, and captivating vintage pattern paper to create her mesmerizing mixed-media, abstract collage works. Through her masterful technique, she produces surfaces that are richly layered with textures and adorned with expressive line work, resulting in artworks that are both visually stimulating and aesthetically satisfying. Drawing inspiration from the early Synthetic Cubists, Abstract Expressionists, and the esteemed St. Ives School of Painters, she pushes the boundaries of her craft, forging a distinct artistic path that is both innovative and thought-provoking.

This one-of-a-kind 36-inch tall by 48-inch wide mixed media artwork on canvas is wired and ready to hang.

Free delivery is available for those in the local Los Angeles area, and affordable worldwide shipping is available for US and international art collectors.

Hailing from the vibrant artistic hub of Brooklyn, Susan Washington was raised in a creative family that fostered her innate talent from a young age. At the tender age of seven, her Japanese godmother imparted to her the ancient art of sumi ink painting, igniting a lifelong passion for art and fashion. With a solid foundation rooted in both disciplines, Washington honed her skills within the bustling fashion industry of New York City for over 15 years before finding her home in the serene Pocono Mountains.

“My recent work continues the exploration of shapes that originate in tailoring pattern pieces,” says Washington. “My works over time have become more structural in their compositions. I utilize textile cutouts that have been previously sewn and/or painted. I allow threads and frayed edges to act as ‘painterly’ gestures within a loose grid of contrasting shapes that jostle for position across the canvas. I enjoy the tensions where shapes meet and create negative space or where color overlaps and interacts.”

Washington's modernist approach to Cubist-inspired artworks has gained international recognition for asymmetrical geometric elements that combine to form a complex, layered composition. Her artworks have been exhibited and collected internationally, including in New York, Los Angeles, and Shanghai.

Susan Washington

A strong narrative runs through Susan Washington's work with references to her long involvement with collage, textiles, fashion, and art. She comes from a family of artists and by age 5 Susan was tutored in the art of origami and Sumi ink drawing by her Japanese godmother as well as watercolors from her father. She spent her teens deconstructing dressmaking as a punk fashionista. Washington then landed on 5th Avenue working at Dior and Nautica.

Gravitating to the oeuvres of Rauschenberg, Cy Twombly, and Joan Mitchell, Washington has continued to push boundaries, re-inventing her work with each new piece while continuing to maintain the cohesive thread that creates her signature look.
