Susan Poirier is a contemporary artist known for her minimal, abstract paintings. To achieve a lightness of touch, she pours acrylic paint, creating subtle veils of color to attain her almost monochromatic works. Preparation is integral as she often begins with a black background requiring multiple trials to achieve the desired final color. Her paintings have a spiritual, meditative quality, and she references Mark Rothko, Ellsworth Kelly, Eva Hesse, Robert Ryman, and James Turrell as her inspiration. Although she has had a lifelong love of art, Susan did not begin painting until retiring from a career as a critical nurse and educator, which she says has a profound influence on the art she creates. Her work is shown in the Sacramento area and has received multiple juror’s awards. She has also exhibited at M. David & Co. in New York and Artsy online. Born in Boston, MA in 1952, she resides and works in Carmichael, CA.
