ABOUT THE ARTIST

           After graduation from the Studio and Forum of Stage Design in New York City under the rigorous tutelage of Lester Polakov, Sue Gurnee satisfied her ambition to work as a scenic artist and created backdrops and artwork for theatre and motion pictures. Hired by the Larson Company in Tucson, Arizona, Sue Gurnee spent two and a half years painting the background murals for the JungleWorld Exhibit at the Bronx Zoo. At the completion of painting the three story high walls surrounding the three acre indoor habitat for endangered species, she founded her own museum exhibit design company in New York called Brickside Studio. After years of painting and fabricating natural history habitats for museums across the United States, she closed her business and moved to the mountains of North Carolina. Here she invites artists and like-minded people to partake of the wonderment of nature. Ken Johnson of New York Times likened her work to Kandinsky and chose her series "Fulgent Cadences" to review and feature during Art Week NYC 2010. Her artwork has been projected on the Berliner Dom during the annual "Festival of Lights" in 2013, 2014, 2015, the Brandenburg Gate in 2018, & the TV Tower & the Bode Museum in 2019.

 

Two story, Solo Exhibition, Constellation Points,  153 East 53rd St., New York, NY

            Susan Gurnee conducted experiments with what she calls Resonance Art. Trained as a scientific illustrator and trompe-l’oeil artist, she drew on her artistic skill to continue a tradition used by shamans and medicine men to evoke change. The response to her first Resonance Art exhibition, in Graz, Austria was very positive. Since then, due to the inspired reactions from others, she painted The Body Vital Series. She has created many multilayered Resonance Art works for public and private collections in Europe and the United States. Susan is a member of the National Arts Club and the Society of Women Geographers.
