Susan Fishgold Paintings
Susan Fishgold is a Brooklyn, NY-based painter who works in an unusual technique she has developed called layered monotype, using translucent overprinted glazes of color that she then works into with brush, pencil, crayon, guache and other media. The result is a free but very controlled application of color and texture that she uses to portray the “visual and spiritual rhythms of color, as the expression of the movement within form, the life under the skin of the image.” Her imagery is drawn from natural forms, but her works are very much about the relationships of colors. She often works in series, creating the same image repetitively but with differing colors.Her work has been collected by the National Museum of Women in the Arts, in Washington, DC, the National Museum of American Art of the Smithsonian Institute (Artists Books Collection), IBM Corporation, Phillip Morris Corporation, and Deloitte & Touche, Inc., among others, and has been exhibited in numerous galleries in the U.S. and Europe. She studied at the Art Students’ League, in New York, and at Brooklyn College, and her teachers have included Robert Beverly Hale, Lee Bonticou, Sylvia Stone, Lois Dodd and Robert Bermilin.

Artist's Statement:
Monotype is a process in which ink is applied to a plate and the plate applied to the paper or canvas, thereby transferring the ink. I perform these steps by hand, using no press, as each of my pieces is a unique work. I generally overprint several layers, using thin glazes to achieve a luminous quality and vein-like textured surface. I then work into the print with crayon, ink, pencil, paint or other media. I often work in series, producing multiple monotype images with varying colors on individual works, and on different works in the series.Trained originally as a painter, I have always been primarily concerned with color and the visual and spiritual rhythms of color as the expression of the movement within form, the life under the "skin" of the image. There is something wonderful about the monotype process -- pressing the entire image, or a large part of it, at once. It goes beyond and also complements the pleasure I find in the precision and focus of the brush, pencil or crayon. I also feel that, while image and pictorialism remain important to me, the use of the monotype process -- as opposed to direct application by brush -- "frees" the color to some extent from the edges of form. Finally, with monotype you're closer to the actual artwork itself -- there's nothing between you and it. I feel like I'm dancing around the plate.
