Suzanne Chamlin: Recent Paintings and Drawings

September 19 - October 12, 2000

The exhibition "Suzanne Chamlin: Recent Paintings and Drawings" will include paintings and drawings worked on at different on site locations. Working with imagery from the landscape and cityscape, the artist explores the tension between real and imaginary places. The theme of light, experienced directly and from memory, is an important element of these pieces. (left: Farmyard '99 (#8), 1999, ink and washes on paper, 26 x 40 inches)

"My paintings are based on my perception of light in nature. I work with light, as I experience it directly, as well as in memory and imagination....Through landscape I explore my perceptual and more interior connections to nature. The subject in my paintings often develops as I am working and as I respond to and define particular forms within the paintings. Working outside from observation and developing the imagery of my mind are equally important in my methodology; the two are in a continual dialogue with each other. I am currently exploring the tension between real and imaginary landscape, as I understand it as a reflection of what I feel from nature, and as an entity in itself." (left: Accabonac, 1998, ink and wash on paper, 22 x 30 inches; right: Andalucian, #2, oil on canvas, 16 x 11 inches)

Chamlin recently exhibited (March 20 - April 1) at the National Arts Club in New York, NY.
