Suzanne Caporael

Suzanne Caporael (b. 1949, Brooklyn, New York) grew up on the beaches in California and continues to find herself drawn to bodies of water. Even when her work does not directly reference water, her style of abstraction holds a calm but steady power, like that of a current making its way through a body of water. Although not overtly figurative, her work is rooted in reality. Driven by various ideas relating to perception, she translates concepts such as the periodic table, tree rings, estuaries, ice, and time into stunning visual images. Caporael received both her BA and MFA from Otis College of Art and Design. She has received a Guggenheim Fellowship (2020) and a National Endowment for the Arts Painting Grant (1986). Caporael has been a visiting professor at the University of California in Santa Barbara and the San Francisco Art Institute. In 2009, she was an artist-in-residence at the Joseph and Anni Albers Foundation in Connecticut. Her work is in numerous public and private collections, including the Carnegie Museum of Art, Chazen Museum of Art, Fine Arts Museum of San Francisco, Fogg Art Museum at Harvard University, High Museum of Art, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles, Orange County Museum of Art, Santa Barbara Museum of Art, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and the Whitney Museum of American Art, among others. Suzanne Caporael currently lives and works in Islesboro, Maine.
