Elisa Contemporary Art presents Moments of Nature, a curated solo exhibit of Los Angeles Flow artist, Suzan Woodruff at The Yoga House in Piermont (NY).
Suzan Woodruff captures nature in all its power and sensuality in her abstract “flow” paintings. Her voluptuous landscapes, cloudscapes, seascapes and dunescapes each saturated with rich colors and texture bring the viewer into a new transcendental space. The rills, deltas, waves and eddies are created through her vision and laws of physics.
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."
She finds her inspirations in the forces of nature and the everchanging views - from the photos from the Hubble Telescope and new Satellite imagery to solar flares, Aurora Borealis and any pheromone in nature or science. Her latest series includes works based on natural fractals.
Suzan's paintings blend Zen serenity, human passion and earthly sensuality, often evoking the work of Georgia O’Keefe, whom she great admires for her use of feminine and sexual imagery.
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 shows have been reviewed and featured in Art Ltd, Budapest Sun, Artweek, Huffington Post, White Hot , d’Art International and many other print and new media sites.
Suzan’s artwork has been collected in museums, corporate and private collections including the 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, AT&T, Sperry Rand, and SONY.
Join us in Piermont on Saturday, September 15 from 4-6pm for a Special Reception at The Yoga House, 466 Piermont Avenue, Piermont NY
