Elisa Contemporary Art presents Moments of Nature, a solo exhibit of Los Angeles artist Suzan Woodruff, in a pop-up gallery space in Piermont NY.
In our latest exhibit, Moments of Nature, we're thrilled to present a solo exhibit of Los Angeles Flow artist, Suzan Woodruff. The exhibit takes place at a Piermont (NY) pop-up gallery located at The Yoga House. The show will be on exhibit from June 30 through September 10th, 2012.
Suzan Woodruff is a co-founder of the Los Angeles "Flow Movement," whose expressionist paintings are inspired by the forces of nature and physics. For Suzan, the act of painting is not simply about portraying the physical processes of nature, but actually reproducing them. She creates elegant abstractions that seem to capture the dynamism of natural phenomena from Turner-esque sunsets to sedate seascapes to turbulent tornadoes.
Her creative tools include acrylic paint, water, light, space, evaporation, chaos, mediation and physics. According to Suzan,
"I control the direction [of the paint] by spinning it, flipping it, tipping it, spraying it, using gravity. It looks like something made in nature, the same way you watch water from the ocean pull back sand with the waves, or when you look at the sky and see the clouds being pushed by wind."
Through her process, thinned acrylic pigments course across her surfaces clearly following their own natural path creating rills, deltas, waves and eddies. The results are voluptuous, sensual landscapes, cloudscapes, seascapes, dunescapes and all sorts of natural spaces − even bodyscapes.
Suzan Woodruff’s work has been exhibited in galleries and museums throughout the US, Canada, Europe and Asia; and recently has been featured in solo and group exhibits in Santa Monica, San Francisco and Budapest, Hungary. She is a recipient of numerous awards and artist residencies including the Sanskriti Center for the Arts. Her work has been collected in museums, corporate and private collections House of Saud, Will and Jada Pinkett Smith, Todd Wagner, Ibrahim Alkazi (The Sepia Collection), Martin and Norma Stevens, Michael Korie; The Scottsdale Center for the Arts, The Sanskriti Foundation,.
