Cloud Shadow (OS), tinted polymer on panel, 51 x 48 inches.

Foster/White Gallery is pleased to announce the addition of Susan English to our artist roster. English is best known for her luminous polymer on panel and paper works which appear to radiate from the thin layers of polymer that are built up to create her pieces.


Outland No. 43, tinted polymer on panel, 40 x 36 inches. 

I have developed a process of pouring layers of tinted polymer on panel that has expanded the breadth of what I can achieve with color and surface in my abstract works. After pouring the tinted polymer, I manipulate the panel so the paint collects or cracks. The poured polymer mimics nature: a layer of polymer hardens like ice or mud —its thickness and viscosity impacting how the surface dries. The variations on the surface and the quality of the color are the result of a delicate and flexible relationship between control and accident. - Susan English
