Susie McKay Krieser is an artist based in Los Angeles whose practice consists of figurative and abstract work, including drawing, painting, sculpture, and furniture design. Her formative years were spent in Mexico and California, which influences the bright colors and sense of light in her work. While acquiring her Bachelor of Arts degree, she focused on graphic design and photography, spurring on a love of line, shape, the vibrations of color, simultaneously distilling her work while still telling a story. Her work hangs in collections in the US, Mexico, England, France, and at the American Embassy in Lisbon, Portugal, and the Eli and Edythe Broad Stage in Santa Monica. There is a permanent exhibit of 4 of her works of art at the Broad Stage in Santa Monica, CA.
Krieser was featured by CityTV for the show "-The Wave - Santa Monica Arts and Culture", May 2019. Click here to see the video.
Her artwork was featured in the blog, Ponder and Dream, regarding the Santa Monica Airport Artwalk.
She was Published in the Italian Art Magazines, BIANCOSCURO, and EFFETTO ARTE.
"...The elegant definition of proximity between line and color fields is a lovely gestural play of tonalities. I like the implicit Gauguinesque-ness of form versus light and the public intimacy that results."
Renee Sigal, Swiss Art Critic
"...All these details breathe life into an anonymous face: a common face in which anyone can identify..."
Renata Panizzieri, Italian Art Critic
"The Figure defines the work; subdued colors make it vibrant. The landscape is a space where dramatic concepts have full scope; the large canvas enlarges the perspective; you experience you are present and part of (the) moment."
Ranjan Munshi, Art Collector - India
"You have developed an interesting technique of application, spontaneous, brilliant definition and merging of colors. The figure defined as a landscape is vibrant and well composed with linear and field affects of color creating interesting segments of light and color. "
Peter Filzmaier, International Artist - USA
"The figurative landscape is a strong composition with excellent balance, and the opposing colors add a gentle push-pull to the artwork. It is wonderful to see you creating with the rollers and I like the stippling, blending that you have used in some areas. I look forward to seeing more of your artwork."
Laara Williamsen, International Artist - Canada
"This artist has an extraordinary talent. The use of rollers, a limited muted palette with little detail has interestingly been immensely effective and successful, capturing emotion, movement, and vibrancy. The powerful figure outstretched, fully relaxed, at one with the landscape. Man empowered, engaged with the landscape. Brilliant."
