“Susanne Doremus’ paintings are endlessly engaging to behold. Replete with the indexical marks of thinking and being, painted lines rhythmically meander across the surface, pours puddle and stain, paintbrush drips dance in staccato arabesques, and notations and glimpses of texts and figures punctuate the largely abstract passages with their playful signifying codes. There are vestiges of architectural scaffolding, automatist doodles, scratches, and rubbings all celebrating the vitality of expressive subjectivity. These are dense paintings, for they are worked and reworked, the artist adding and subtracting in a process that is both unconscious and then completely deliberate. Even so, their exceedingly complex surfaces yield a pitch perfect harmony. The balance of the many disparate parts and varied vocabularies is astonishing, elegant, satisfying in a way that speaks to how we cope with the glorious cacophony of life.
