Susan Eley Fine Art presents A Sense of Place: New Works by Rachel Burgess & James Isherwood

Thursday, February 21st, 2019

Susan Eley Fine Art is pleased to present A Sense of Place: New Work by Rachel Burgess & James Isherwood, opening on Thursday, February 28, with a reception from 6-8 pm, and remaining on view through April 11. The exhibition features monotypes by Rachel Burgess and paintings on wood panel and paper by James Isherwood. This exhibition is Burgess’s second one at SEFA, and Isherwood, a Gallery Artist since 2008, has been featured in many group and two person exhibitions at SEFA. 

The coastal landscapes of Maine have been the main source of inspiration for Rachel Burgess for many years. Burgess’s ongoing fascination with how land meets water— along rivers, lakes and the seaside—fuels the creation of her stunning, expressive painterly monotypes. Burgess’s landscapes are spare, punctuated by an occasional house or lighthouse. Trees and bushes sometimes line the coastal edges, but they are not the main attraction, which is always where the water meets the uninterrupted horizon line, where grassy green melts seamlessly into watery edges.

In James Isherwood’s recent landscapes, elements are rarely as expected. Skies are bright pink or yellow, the grass is not always green and the mountain ranges can be neon orange. In these enigmatic paintings Isherwood has found a place where fantasy and reality merge to create a third zone, led by imagination and memory. An Isherwood landscape might evoke the memory of a real place, tickle the feeling of a hillside or a pool of water. Yet, these are impossible, surreal scenes, built up with fragmented, architectural structures, set in otherworldly landscapes; yet compositions are utterly harmonious with elements, man made and natural, all in synch. Painter Rene Magritte comes to mind in the clean edges of fantastic tree lines, silhouetted against night skies, populated with a density of tiny stars.

Susan Eley presents Winter Selects: A Group Exhibition

Saturday, January 26th, 2019

Winter Selects: A Group Exhibition featuring recent work by nine artists and begins the new year at Susan Eley Fine Art. Artists include Seongmin Ahn, Karin Bruckner, Susan Clinard, Peggy Dembicer, Nancy Hubbard, Lydia Janssen, Rachelle Krieger, Chase Langford and Nancy Moore. The exhibition highlights a mix of artists from SEFA’s roster, along with artists exhibiting with the Gallery for the first time. Among the newcomers are three Guild Members of the Silvermine Arts Center, a non-profit contemporary arts and education center, located in New Canaan CT. The Gallery believes it’s important to mount significant bi-annual group shows, alternating throughout the year with solo and two-person exhibitions. These group exhibitions offer artists regular opportunities to show new work, often fresh off the studio walls, and invite artists to see their work in the context of that of their peers. And for visitors to the Gallery, the rich array of styles and techniques in a group show offers a taste of the full roster of art represented by the Gallery.

The exhibition closes February 21st.
