Conduit Gallery will present a solo exhibition of work by Dallas-based artist Susie Phillips.

Phillips, who works primarily in painting, pastel and collage, was reacquainted with her early needlework in 2016. While searching through flat files, a piece of stitching done years ago presented itself. She needed it. Needed the quiet, contemplative occupation, the soothing rhythm of pulling thread through linen to calm against what was happening in Washington D.C.

This show brings to life long forgotten ideas and dreams, pulled from old sketchbooks and bins of saved ideas. Phillips equates her needlework with the creation of a painting. The selection of colors, stitches, threads giving her the same optimism and anticipation as making a new painting or collage.

Phillips’ newest collection of small-scale embroideries are quiet works. Vessels, flowers, and the occasional figure appear in a variety of bold styles, washed in color; elaborate, yet simple in form. Her still lifes can be layered in patterns and Fauvist-levels of color; or they can be abstract musings on domestic settings and pastoral landscapes.

The exhibition will remain on display through May 15.
