SUSAN WEIL'S MIXED-MEDIA WORKS address the plastic quality of time and space through processes of cutting, crumpling and refiguring her compositions. In allowing the viewer's eye to contemplate a series of moments and perspectives at once, Weil generously gives an almost omniscient power to the viewer, as well as a sense not of fractured time but of a more truthful depiction of genuine experience. Weil has influenced many in the Abstract Expressionist movement - especially her ex-husband, Robert Rauschenberg, with whom she collaborated on many projects, most notably the Blueprint paintings of 1950. 
Her work is in many major museum collections, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, New York; The Museum of Modern Art, New York, New York; the Victoria and Albert Museum, London; and the J. Paul Getty Museum, Malibu, California.
