Susan Yard Harris
Susan Yard Harris creates rhythmic, all-over compositions from which larger forms appear to emerge — testing both the limits of our perception and our expectations about abstraction. The hand-drawn gestures suggest particles, matter, energy, or simply marks on a white surface as obsessively rendered visible traces. Her drawings are atomized marks gathered into subtle, atmospheric fields and texture. Seen together, her drawings equate macrostructure and microstructure — metaphors for very large, very small, or remote environments, with titles often evoking nature or alluding to personal events.
