Meticulously crafted, Susie Rosmarin’s paintings defy the limitations of two-dimensionality and pulsate with charged matrices of color and light. While mathematics play a central role in Rosmarin’s work, she is also influenced by Op Art, hard-edge abstraction, and the observation of pattern, repetition and geometry in nature and everyday life – gingham and fabric design, modular architecture details and even the front grille of a 1960’s Cadillac. – Danese Corey
In the mid-90s, Rosmarin became fascinated with mathematical patterns — how things arrive at certain sums. Because of the nature of her process, Rosmarin has to wait until the end to see how the work has come together into a unified whole, a final sum. She doesn’t know exactly how it’s going to look until she pulls the last piece of tape off. When talking about why she enjoys painting, Rosmarin says very matter-of-factly: “Making something happen on a piece of canvas is really satisfying.”” – David Feil
