 Susan Marx - "Rose Garden" (2012), 30"x 24", acrylic on canvas


Abstract Impressionist Susan Marx's devotion to startling jubilant color is contagious.  She is in love with color and with paint. 
Inspired by the French masters, Monet, Van Gogh and Abstract Expressionist Joan Mitchell,  Marx invigorates her canvases with colorful dynamic brushstrokes.  She approaches painting with the thoughtful spontaneity of an Impressionist.  Pastoral scenes are alive with spirited energy.  Marx's effervescent use of light pierces through her canvasses, stunning us into sensual appreciation of our natural world. 
Ardently devoted to painting en plein air, out of doors, Marx's dedication to nature is lithe with personal emotions.  Sensuous shapes tempered with vigorous color, breathe life into Marx's personal, dynamic compositions.  "Color, the use of warm and cool colors and their combinations are of extreme importance, as are my expressive brushstrokes, my personal handwriting," explains Marx.  "My painting is a result of my radical amazement at the visual world and my need to turn that visual experience into paint.  Nature is my starting point, but not my end result.  I try to capture the essence of a scene.  Its emotions and color.  And leave the rest to the viewer's imagination to bring him itso the painting."
Susan Marx is represented by and exhibits at the A. Jain Marunouchi Gallery, 24 West 57th Street,  the Agora Gallery, 520 West 25th Street and the Amsterdam Whitney Gallery, 531 West 25th Street in New York City.  She has also exhibited at the Fox Gallery, the Keane Mason Gallery and The Emerging Collector in New York and in New Jersey at the Robin Hutchins Gallery, the Korby Gallery, the Hait Gallery, Nitsa Fine Arts, the Marino Gallery, The Art Gallery of South Orange, The Gaelen Gallery East, The Tenth Muse, and The Right Angle.  She exhibited in Paris at the Musée des Duncan.  In Israel, she showed her work at the Museum of Printing Art in Safed and at the Artist's House in Jerusalem.
Marx's paintings are is in private collections in the United States and abroad. She lives in Orange, NJ and volunteers at the Montclair Art Museum and the Newark Museum.
