Description 'Evolution Number Eight: Standing Out in the Crowd' is eighth in my 'Evolution' series. The original is 11x14 painting on stretched canvas. 'Evolution' is a series of visually thrilling and provocative visions of Woman and her many 'forms;' these 'forms' are completely metaphorical, conjuring up surrealistic elements amidst a sophisticated color palette which creates a chaotic, yet tightly woven, body of work.
Susan Van Sant, Grand Rapids Member Since July 2011 Artist Statement Susan Van Sant is a self-representing artist who has been creating and selling her artwork across the globe since 2007. Each painting has been carefully rendered on either stretched canvas or wood panel using a glazing technique with many layers which results in an almost dimensional quality with gorgeous depth of color. Inspired by the early masters technique and limited color palette, Susan strives to bring this timeless energy into her work. She is captivated by beauty in sadness, and many of her pieces contain a mysterious brooding quality.
