"Susan Moss’ emotionally charged yet lyrical paintings attest to her strength, precise control of color and depth, and her maverick originality. In the words of a liquor-store thief who stole Black Forest VII, (fortunately returned to the artist for a monetary award), “She really spilled out her guts on that one!” The painting was subsequently owned by Cliff and Mandy Einstein who eventually donated it to the Skirball Center’s Museum. Reaching a nationwide audience, Moss creates intriguing and inimitable works of art. Dealing with environmental catastrophe, war and peace, and psychological issues, Moss uses a lifetime of study of mediums, color, and methods that has led her to her newest series, Peace Pieces. This series consists of large-scale canvases and drawings saturated with vibrant color and curvilinear shapes. With slashing lines, searing color, and intense energy, the paintings resonate with spiritual power, like a prayer rug."
