Susan Vecsey


Working between New York City and East Hampton, artist Susan Vecsey delicately weaves influences from Mark Rothko and Helen Frankenthaler. In her virtuoso manipulations of color, form, and space within poetic compositions, Susan Vecsey masterfully crafts an emotional experience.

In exploring nature’s abstract elements, Susan Vecsey’s paintings, a poetic fusion of geometric abstraction and minimalist landscapes, go beyond an intelligent reading of form. Her intentional play with perception allows each observer to project their own reflections onto the canvas where simplicity and abstraction coalesce.

During her residency at La Maison de Simon, the artist will work on a smaller series offering an intimate exploration of her work.


SUSAN VECSEY (b. 1971)

Susan Vecsey adapts the Color Field technique of pouring paint to create a personal language of abstraction, rooted in the natural world and the human experience of it. In a distinctive process that includes plein-air charcoal drawing, pastel and color studies, and multiple pours of liquefied oil on a surface of raw Belgian linen, she builds compositions in luminous tonal combinations that evoke the optical effects of sea, light, and air. Inspired by the landscapes of eastern Long Island, Vecsey’s paintings evoke not just a place, but its very atmosphere.

Born in New Jersey in 1971, Vecsey earned her B.A. from Barnard College and her M.F.A. from the New York Studio School of Drawing, Painting and Sculpture, where she studied with Graham Nickson. She has had solo exhibitions at Greenville County Museum in South Carolina, John Jermain Memorial Library in Sag Harbor, Tayloe Piggott Gallery in Jackson Hole, and Berry Campbell Gallery in New York, among other venues. She lives and works in Manhattan and East Hampton, Long Island.
