Art Brokerage: Susan Shup American Artist: She moved to Paris in the 1980’s and soon began exhibiting with the Galerie George Lavrov who showed her mostly large monochromatic landscapes on un-stretched canvas, at his Paris gallery but also at FIAC, the London Art Fair, and the Basel Art Fair. Shup was also included in a show on Swiss collections at the Basel Museum für Gegenwartskunst - her first museum show. In 1989 she was invited to have a one woman show at the Belgian gallery Le Cirque Divers, a gallery showing many important european fluxus and pataphysics artists. The experience was a turning point for her. She began taking more seriously the writing, taping, and videos that she had always casually done, and started to create work of a more conceptual, humorous nature, though maintaining her American abstract expressionist and color field roots in her painting. In the 1990’s she began showing regularly with Marie Victoire Poliakoff at the Galerie Pixi in Paris, she also had a solo show at ARTO in Aubervilliers and was included in many group shows including at the Musée d’Art Modern de Liège, at the Campredon Art et Culture, L’Isle-sur-la Sorgue, the Galerie Quinze, Paris and the Galerie du Collège Marcel Duchamp in Chateauroux and at the Judy Ann Goldman Fine Art Gallery, Boston. By the end of the 90's, language and figuration both became important in her painting. She began making works on paper and large scale figurative paintings, homages to the woman artist and commentary on a certain portrayal of women in popular media. Listings wanted.
