Paintings by Susan Webb Tregay
|"This work is as much about the process of creation as
it is about life in the second half of this century."
For many years Susan Tregay simply painted houses as she saw them, strictly adhering to the visual truth. As she began to look deeper, however, she saw that these structures suggested so much more: humor, irony, emotion, even hypocrisy. Today their slumped or bending forms often display more personality than realistic detail.
Tregay works with a variety of media to bring her paintings to life. Collage, acrylic paint and pastel are all utilized on a variety of surfaces to present houses that she believes are metaphors for people's lives.
