> DESCRIPTION

 

Susan Wolff likes to cover things up.  Old paintings are obliterated, appearing as if they have been covered by the sands of time, their past images and meanings buried below layers of fresh paint.  Found books are frantically and obsessively drawn over, page after page disappear under the endless marks of a Sharpie, the original texts and images lost below wave after wave of ink.  However, the artist is not trying to cancel out.  Instead, the objects she works over are a starting point. The images and texts she covers up are not important, they simply become the underpainting.  What is important is the process of covering up.  And in the process, what can be discovered.
