Suzie Newman is a professional artist and art therapist. She received her BFA from Endicott College in 2016, and recently received her Masters in Art Therapy and Counseling from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Suzie is an oil painter whose paintings are a kind of contemporary pointillism, referencing a digital process as well as a painterly tradition. From the freckles on her...
... skin, to flocks of birds disappearing as they fly, combinations of points have always fascinated her. She converts this every day visual attraction into a painting series, entitled, "Viewpoints," which reflects the themes of interconnectedness and multiplicity. Central to the work is the juxtaposition of chaotic patterns of dots with empty white resting space, which enable the viewer to have an in-depth conversation with the work. Suzie believes that art is about dialogue and transformation and as an artist is deeply transformed by the making and sharing of her artwork.
