Suzanne Caporael, American (1949 - )
Suzanne Caporael

American painter, Suzanne Caporael, studied at the Otis Art Institute completing both her BFA and MFA. Between 1984-1986 she received a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts and held her first major exhibition at the Newport Harbor Art Museum and the Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art. Caporael’s work ranges from organic to geometric with compositions varying from landscapes to colorful shapes and forms. Her landscapes often deal with the struggle between man and nature. The exploration of the physical world through allegory occupies her currently.

In 2009, she was an artist- in-residence at the Joseph and Anni Albers Foundation in Connecticut. Her work is in numerous public and private collections including the Art Institute of Chicago; The Chasen Museum of Art, Madison, Wisconsin; The Los Angeles Museum of Contempo- rary Art; The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; The Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, New York; and Yale University, New Haven, Connecticut.

Until moving to New York in 1999, Caporael lived in rural California. She currently lives and works on a farm in Stone Ridge, New York with her husband, the novelist Bruce Murkoff.
