443 P A S is proud to present “SPACEKNIT” a collection of past and
present works by Sue Havens.
Described in ArtForum as
“improvisational and exacting”, Havens paintings are paradoxical: flat, yet
dimensional, and bold with an inner quiet, hard edged yet fragile, cartoonish
but serious. There is geometry with a built in wobble--a structure with an
underlying undoing-a precision with a persistent irregularity. There is tension
in places where planes transition- they collide and overlap, and where muted
colors meet bright colors, forming a harmonic and balanced, yet discordant
tension. The result is a three
dimensional journey of abstraction where painting and sculpture collide in a symphony
of beauty and artistic grace.
She has exhibited with Postmasters,
Regina Rex, White Colums, Fredrich
Petzel, Art in General, Momenta Art, Sara Meltzer, OK Harris, Pierogi, Portland
Art Center (Portland), And/Or (Dallas), and The Cooper Union, among others.
Havens is a 2008 fellow in Painting
from the New York Foundation for the Arts. She holds a BFA from The Cooper
Union, and an MFA from The Milton Avery Graduate School of The Arts at Bard
She is the author of "Make
Your Own Toys," 2010, with Random House (Potter Craft), and creates in Brooklyn,
New York, and teaches at Pratt Institute and Montclair State University.
