CAPERS Home is so excited to feature mixed-media fine artist Susan Mulligan this month!
About Susan Mulligan:
Susan Mulligan received her BFA at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and has studied independently in Arita, Japan with National Living Treasure, Manji Inoue.
Susan creates mixed media pieces starting with oil paint and beeswax over giclee photographic prints. She then begins adding many layers, which may be the laying down of paint, pigment, found textiles and objects or subtraction by using a variety of tools to reveal underlying patterns and texture. Final burnishing enhances the patina and hardens the surface, accentuating texture, light quality and depth.
Susan works in the present, reacting to the events of the process, to reveal representations of the natural world – simplicity, harmony, naturalness, imperfection, and serene beauty.
Stop by for sips, apps, and to meet the artist in person. See you Thursday!
