Susan Breen Remedy explores our present sense of social, psychological, and physical maladies by imagining the transformation of various ‘ailments,’ to a contemporary visual representation of what might, in theory, relieve that state of being.

Remedy expresses possibility and hope where neither comes too freely. In her remarkable series of original oil paintings, Breen addresses the current notion of affliction as simply a kind of potential existing in a latent, raw state. The patterned and abstract restorative power of Breen’s stunning palette and conceptual intuitiveness is rendered with force and great beauty.

The majority of Breen’s compositions are grounded in symmetry, having derived broadly from Mandalic symbology. Breen’s interests in botany, physics, Eastern philosophy and medicine complicate notions of easy, logical order and balance. This combination has helped Breen’s work to possess a seeming openness of form, an absolute rigor in execution, and a true awareness of our universal need to heal.

There are many ways to safely take part in our current Susan Breen: Remedy 2021 solo exhibition! Visit Woodward Gallery’s street level exhibition windows 24/7 in person; view online on WoodwardGallery.net, on Artsy.net, and step into the virtual Artsy Viewing Room.
