For too long, Susan Weil was known as the wife of Robert Rauschenberg, although Weil herself has been a talented artist since the late 1940s. A recent retrospective of Weil’s multi-dimensional work was held at the Sundaram Tagore Gallery, grouping an exciting selection of her pieces. Weil will often play with her canvases, overlapping individual canvases to create installations made up of many parts. Or she will play with the canvas itself, twisting or bending her painting to create movement or change the space. Weil has even concentrated details on the sides of the canvas, creating a series of Peripheries that incites the viewer to come at the picture from a different angle or point of view.
