Susan Medyn is another of the new artists in our Rhode Island program. Susan is a painter, using primarily watercolor for her instantly recognizable illustrations. She began painting 39 years ago and is inspired by her love of color and whimsical scenes. Her work portrays imaginary worlds, almost utopias, where fantastical creatures reside peacefully and harmoniously. Susan’s images tells stories of parties, dinners, gatherings, walks in the wild, and intimate conversations. She combines these themes of ritual, celebration, and emotional exchanges with colorful, naive imagery to create her sophisticated, splendid scenes.
Susan is currently exhibiting at three venues in Belgium — Galerie Spirale, L’space 30, and Chateaux de Beauregard — and recently exhibited at the 7th Annual Festival D’Art Naif in Katowice, Poland, The Artful Heart in Arlington, MA, and was a part of the South Coast Artists Open Studio Tours in 2014.
She has previously had solo shows at Russell Gallery in Westport, MA, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, NY, and Ribbongrass in Albany, NY.
