I am fascinated by cutaway diagrams of the earth that show the top layer of the crust and successive go deeper to the molten magma layers. This is a painterly take on the layers of the earth.

This is one of my favorites paintings in this exhibition. I love the combination of liquidy paint on the bottom with the powdered pigment and clean lines and the scratchy grass-like surface of the crust near the top.

This painting is part of Susan’s solo exhibition “Potential Energy”.
