Available Works

Becky Suss makes paintings of domestic interiors where memory, reality, and subjectivity converge. She began her project focusing on her grandparents’ home and the art and décor therein and has moved on to train her eye on other interior spaces, most recently the studio and home of Philadelphia sculptor and furniture designer, Wharton Esherick.


Suss had a solo exhibition at the Instute of Contemporary Art, Philadelphia in 2015 and a solo show at Jack Shainman Gallery, New York, NY in 2017. She has shown at venues in Philadelphia including Vox Populi, Space 1026, The Icebox, Little Berlin, Painted Bride Arts Center, and University City Arts League. Elsewhere she has exhibited in group exhibtions at The School/Jack Shainman Gallery, Kinderhook, NY; The Fralin Museum of Art, University of Virginia, Charlottesville, VA; Berkeley Art Museum, Berkeley, CA; The Hunterdon Museum of Art, Clinton, NJ; Western Exhibitions, Chicago, IL; and LUMP, Raleigh, NC, among others. Suss was a resident at Vermont Studio Center in 2012 and at Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture in 2013. Suss received her MFA from University of California, Berkeley and her BA from Williams College. Her work is in the collections of the Philadelphia Museum of Art and the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts.
