Suspending: New Work by Francie Hester at Susan Eley Fine Art

Tuesday, May 7th, 2019

Susan Eley Fine Art is pleased to present Suspending: New Work by Francie Hester, ongoing through May 31. This exhibition is Hester’s second with SEFA, following the success of Materialize, a two-person show with Amber George (2014).  A highlight of Suspending will be the debut showing of forty Daily Drawings, created as a sort of visual diary while on sabbatical in NYC in 2018. Each work on paper, 21 x 17 inches, rendered with acrylic and gold leaf, was a response to her immersion in New York’s art world during the busy spring season. Together, the cycle makes a powerful visual impact, as seemingly random patterns overlap between the 40 individual drawings.

Syncopation at ODETTA Gallery

Sunday, April 28th, 2019

ODETTA is pleased to share Syncopation – Emily Berger and Bob Seng. Chance, improvisation within the tight constraints of a limited color palette, and their monastic approach to their chosen materials brings these two artists together in their first two-person exhibition.

Emily Berger’s paintings are based on a structure of repetitive and deliberate gesture that is intuitive but carefully considered. She brushes, wipes, rubs, and scrapes, incorporating the color, texture, and pattern of the wood supports, concealing and revealing underlying layers in various states of transparency and solidity. Working with, and against, whatever happens as she paints, from edge to edge exposes areas of the surface to create shapes. Chance is an essential element of her process; but setting the stage, Berger primes the wood in a clear primer so that even more texture will emerge as the brush stutters across the surface, creating vestigial verticals among the horizontals in unpredictable ways.
