Susan Brenner is a painter who also uses photography, digital imaging, drawing, and installation to create her work. For over 20 years her work was concerned with issues related to the body — in its biological, psycho-social, and political manifestations. In more recent years she has shifted focus to the global forces that surround and affect bodies. While her recent work takes the form of abstraction that invites interpretation, her earlier work was more narrative or literary in nature.

She exhibits nationally, is a recent recipient of a Pollock-Krasner grant, and has also received a Southern Arts Federation/NEA Regional Fellowship Award in Painting and Works on Paper, two North Carolina Artist’s Fellowships, and a Regional Artist Project Grant from the Arts & Science Council. Recently, she completed two public art works for the LYNX Blue Line Extension in Charlotte, NC. That work, inspired by the branches of Charlotte’s tree canopy appears as the glass panel walls of the elevator towers at the University City Boulevard and JW Clay light rail stations.
