Susan Woldman / Susan Woldman Elfer

Abstract Art

October 16, 2020

A sculptor at heart, Susan Woldman is an American contemporary artist who brings the sculpting sensibility into her paintings, combining thick textured impasto surfaces with landscape imagery to create depth, movement, and light. Having lived in Manhattan for most of her life, painting these abstract landscapes is a way for Woldman to leave the crowded city. She earned her BA Degree from Sarah Lawrence College. After studying sculpture in Lacoste, France through the Cleveland Institute of Art, she went on to get her MFA at the School of Visual Arts in New York City. For many years she created colorful three-dimensional wall sculptures and larger-than-life-sized statues, but now seems focused on painting.
