Modern Runes by Susan


As a result of last year’s drawing group at our house and studios, Susan is enjoying working in mixed media on paper. Not only have these sessions opened doors to new art ideas, but the comradery between fellow artists is a major benefit.

Above, one of the new works, ‘Modern Runes’, is on display at Lauren’s in Boonville along with works by other members of the Anderson Valley Art Guild.

Modern Runes started with listening to Miles Davis playing jazz on the radio and exploring the play between abstract shapes and staccato images. The dreamy wanderings across the paper reminded me of ancient writings imagined against a midnight sky. It was finished quietly perched up in the studio where we can look out into the tops of the firs in the forest and meditate a little on our place in the universe.
