Northwest artist Susan Dory uses layers of acrylic paint to create an interplay of depth and translucency. Through a process of under painting and pouring paint that strategically uses elements of color and line, Dory activates each canvas surface. Colors seem to both recede and press forward as bold lines move the eye’s gaze in various directions with penetrating affect.
