Susan Eley Fine Art presents – To Have and Not to Hold

Susan Eley Fine Art is pleased to announce the opening of To Have and Not to Hold – a two-person exhibition featuring paintings by Vivian Kahra and photography by Leah Oates.

 Leah Oates is represented by work from her ongoing series Transitory Space, for which she has traveled extensively to China, Canada, Finland and the US. This exhibition includes trees and waterscapes photographed in Nova Scotia, Canada and Prospect Park, Brooklyn (2012-2015). Oates employs a double and sometimes triple exposure, which creates halos of light, dappled, misty surfaces and gauzy effects in muted greens and blues. She offers us stunning, lyrical landscapes in constant flux, shifting and becoming. As time never stands still, neither do the scenes and subject matter through which we experience the march of the clock.

In most of her paintings, Vivian Kahra features a central figure, as in Boy BalancingMan Standing, Fail and Connecting. Whether in motion or still, the figures underline the idea that the world is in constant movement; shifting, swaying and recalibrating as we, its inhabitants, do what we can to keep up and match the planet’s energy. Figures are drawn in activities favored by the artist—rowing, skateboarding, skiing, or sometimes standing still in contemplation.

The exhibition runs until December 31, 2016
