The aura of Susan Paulsen work is painterly. The warm surrounding quality of light, the true tones of rich color, the sentimentality of the scenes make the work alluring. Inviting portraits, voluminous nudes, and enchanting still lives hang with moments of inner reflection and potential conflict. Some paired images perk tension, still lives are to be enjoyed lusciously and the thin thread of vanitas enters in woks with small creatures captured under bell globes- these add just the right balance to enhance the wholistic sense of the series. Overall these are simple moments, daily visions. Elevated above routine we stop for a moment to linger at each quiet moment in Paulsen's exposition titled Sara Rhymes with Clara.
