Nevada City Winery Featuring Artist Susan Lobb Porter

Show Title: Granite Moon

Display Dates: August 1st – September 2nd

Susan Lobb Porter’s show Granite Moon is a new series of abstract paintings inspired by the rugged rocks and rivers of the Sierra. Susan works in a variety of media, including oil & cold wax, acrylic, graphite, and collage as she builds layers of color and texture to create the final piece.

Artist’s Statement

I’m an intuitive painter, an equal opportunity mark maker rarely sticking with one medium as I work on any given piece. What begins as a blank canvas or wood panel quickly becomes a series of layers, most of which will be painted over, scratched into, dissolved or sanded as the work proceeds. Eventually something in the surface evokes something in me. This is the point when the painting tells me where it wants to go. The process then becomes a delicate balance between spontaneity and careful editing.
