Event Description

Lora Schlesinger Gallery is pleased to presents Susan Metzger’s High Water. Susan’s ethereal seascapes are seductive, enticing viewers to look at them and experience them as they would nature, layer by layer. The exhibition opens with the artist’s reception on Saturday, October 24th from 5-7 pm and is on view through December 5th, 2015.
Metzger uses bands of color to create wide-open spaces with translucent atmospheres creating a sense of mystery and natural vastness. The result is a body of work that transforms the beauty of the sublime into a transcendental space. A few of the paintings are only identifiable as seascapes by the softly painted horizon lines, or bursts of white brushstrokes that separate sky from sea. The complexity of her technique in building each piece by slowly applying layers of color, combined with the simplicity of the imagery gives the work presence and power.
Susan Metzger has exhibited nationally including exhibitions in Massachusetts , Maine, Vermont and California. She studied painting at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, in addition to landscape architecture at Radcliffe College in Cambridge, Massachusetts. She also studied architectural drawing at the Rhode Island School of Design in Providence, Rhode Island. She is the recipient of the Helene Wurlitzer Foundation Fellowship Grant in Taos, New Mexico.
