Biography

Beginning in 1979, Susan Morrison’s work was exhibited extensively throughout New England and given high visibility in Boston’s 1980?s “cutting edge” art scene. After two decades in Boston and New York, Susan relocated to her native Oklahoma where she was active in statewide public art commissions, exhibitions and teaching residencies before returning to Boston in 2020.

Artist Statement

Susan’s work finds inspiration in the spiritual geometry of ancient art, design and abstraction of mid-century modern and the fresh inventiveness of cubism. She is an accomplished figurative and abstract painter, often constructing her paintings within a grid-like structure and including architectural and figurative elements.
