Susan Kaprov
Brooklyn, NY
Neighborhood: Brooklyn Heights



ARTIST STATEMENT: As an artist, I am a stylistic and conceptual explorer, gravitating toward experimentation and risk-taking and avoiding allegiances to genres and labels of any kind. I create by giving myself "assignments" or self-imposed themes that I explore in depth. I use my studio as a ‘laboratory’ and my art as a series of ‘research projects’. When I create it's always out of interest or for fun, or a desire to try something I've never done. By creating groups of related works in the same general idiom, I can work through their ramifications with great freedom. Often, though not always, my work functions on the boundary between the abstract and the figurative, retaining some pictographic reference to both. My approach is intentional, balanced by a deliberate playfulness that renders the whole thing vivifying, bringing the act of seeing back into the realm of pure pleasure.
