There is something wonderfully lyrical and sweet about the work of Susan Homer. "Susan Homer is an unabashed romantic. Working with a free and painterly hand she creates lush scenes of overgrown gardens reminiscent of those visited in dreams. Contrasting thick brushwork with delicate passages, she obsessively works and reworks areas in her large scale oil paintings, building an all-over carpet of visceral texture. Referencing elements drawn from her elaborate rooftop garden and a range of other sources from Audubon prints to china patterns to Victorian greeting cards, she creates a world out of time, edenic and rich with nostalgia."
