Susan Weil (b.1930) (she/her/hers) is a painter, poet, printmaker, and book artist living and working in New York.
Weil’s mixed-media works address the plastic quality of time and space through processes of cutting, crumpling, and refiguring her compositions. In allowing the viewer’s eye to contemplate a series of moments and perspectives at once, Weil generously gives an almost omniscient power to the viewer, as well as a sense not of fractured time, but of a more truthful depiction of genuine experience.
Her work is in many major international museum collections, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Malmö Konstmuseum and the Moderna Museet in Sweden; the Johnson Collection in North Carolina; and the Portland Art Museum in Oregon.
Weil attended Black Mountain College (1948-49) and studied at the Art Students League of New York (1949).
