Join the Arts Council of Princeton for an artist talk featuring Sue Collier of FAMILY RECOLLECTIONS, on view in the ACP’s Taplin Gallery.
This body of work consists of large and small figurative paintings from memory, imagination and plein air. The figure remains central to most of my work but because of the nature of plein air, working with a time/light pressure the figure is often omitted. Later in the studio I will sometimes add figures. The figure is meaningful, it is the subject and tells the story, becomes the story, and makes the painting. I am observing experiences from my life, distinctly depicting Americans who were raised here. As fortunate as I think we have been as Americans, we are a complex people with unique understandings and feelings that I believe leaves us with an unusual psychological weight of emotions that I want to record.
