The artist approaches her drawings with a methodical and meditative focus. Beginning with an open hand-drawn grid, she meticulously fills in each shape with fine lines that resemble faintly moving curtains when complete. Janow prefers to work primarily with black ink, but at times substitutes color with very astute and intuitive choices. When working sculpturally with ceramic tiles or wood, she maintains her linear rhythm while exploring other patterns and forms. Each block or tile is painted with a distinct design, which reads like a nuanced bar code of color when composed en masse. Susan’s art practice spans diverse media, including drawing, ceramic, collage, woodwork, textile and film. The artist's work has been exhibited at international galleries and art fairs, and recognized in both outsider and contemporary contexts.
