Mixed Media Collages by Susanne Riette-Keith 

Exhibition: July 3rd – 31st, 2019

Museum Gallery Hours: Tues-Sat from 10am-4pm; Closed on Thurs, July 4th

 

“These mixed media collages were created with a little humor and visual fun in mind.  Combining different patterns of paper and colors together to form an interesting composition that appeals to the eye is truly a challenge but a lot of fun! I love the idea that patterns, in a variety of colors , whether they are polka dots, plaids or florals, can reside next to each other in certain harmony and become a scene or still life, looking visually confusing but still having content,” comments Susanne Riette-Keith.

Susanne is always searching for interesting patterns to use.  She may find them in magazines, wallpaper books, catalogues or scrapbook paper.  Before starting a piece she likes to paint abstract shapes in different colors for the background to create an ambience and feeling for the scene that has yet to be created.   When that is finished, she paints more layers to define the composition until she is satisfied. 

Susanne Riette-Keith has always been interested in creating art, whether it was her own personal artwork or designing for the commercial art world. She graduated from Mass College of Art and Design as an Illustration and Painting major. Many years were devoted to making a living by illustrating for greeting card companies and designing for the toy industry.  She has her own free-lance home studio in Easton, MA where she designs for a variety of clients, which include the gift and toy industries, juvenile products and fabric surface design. Creating her own personal artwork has always been therapeutic and rewarding, making self-expression a wonderful outlet and a good balance from her commercial work.
