"I see something and I want to make a picture of it. This has been a part of who I am since my early childhood.
I work from human models or photographs of people or patterns. I search for forms that interest my eye, sometimes related to the topic of the photograph. My attention is focused on aging beauty, odd shapes, and my family. I love bright, intense color and frequently start with that. Then, stuff happens. I try different colors, tones, lines, and try again and again. Until some resulting pattern of shape and color pleases my eye: being (in some weird way) "balanced", with large to small and dark to light parts, intense but not all over.
I have studied art formally since 9th grade: drawing, painting, sculpture, collage...at Pitzer College, UCLA, UCLA Extension and private workshops.
Of course I have been influenced by my favorite artists and teachers: Picasso, Vlaminck, Cassatt, Shawn, Bonnard, Schiele, De Kooning, Nyeri, Hertel, Elgart, Joseph Blaustein, Mock, Hunzakus, Hilary Taub, Harry Gunderson, and Carla Jerome. From them I learn, and re-learn, color, shape, line, intensity, placement and having a large sense of humor about my work. Or is that last part all mine?" - Susan Price
