Susan Nalaboff Brilliant is an artist whose work centers on the figure in abstraction and movement. Her training in dance, deep interest in visual art, and a scholarship at the Alvin Ailey American Dance Center led her to create posters for a company season in the Diaghilev-Ballet Russe tradition.
Susan graduated with a B.A. Magna Cum Laude in Philosophy from Ithaca College where she studied art with Allen Atwell. She then moved to New York City and continued studying at the Art Students League with Isaac Sawyer and Robert Cenedella. She was also deeply effected by her studies with Charles Pasqaulini at the Roslyn School of Painting who became her dear friend.
Susan's work has been exhibited at the New York Painters Studio Gallery and was included in a group exhibition at The Art Students League in Manhattan. Her paintings are in several private collections and were exhibited by the Gambino collection on Long Island.
She recently moved to San Francisco and continues to study the figure at the 23rd Street Studio. She has opened her own studio at 744 Alabama Street where she is creating new work. Her current series; A Work in Progress-"THE FIGURE in MOVEMENT AND STILLNESS" was shown at the Art Explosions Studio- Open House - during March, October and December 2015. As of May 2016, work in the series "THE FIGURE in MOVEMENT AND STILLNESS" is being exhibited at the Northern California Women's Imaging Center in Palo Alto, California,
