Susan Finsen makes marks. Big and little. Thick and thin. Dark and light. Smooth, bumpy, square, round, curvy, and straight. Drawing inspiration from everyday things and childhood memories, Finsen builds layers on her paintings, turning them upside down and sideways during the creative process and using color, line, shape, and plane changes until the painting achieves interest and excitement. The “Circles and Rings” collection includes details from paintings completed by Finsen between 2008 and 2009. These “paintings within paintings” embody the spirit, playfulness, and energy of the original whole pieces.
