November 5- November 23, 2013
Reception: Thursday, November 7, 6-8pm
Chelsea: Viridian Artists, Inc. is pleased to present an exhibition at our gallery by the artist DEBORAH SUDRAN entitled “PAINTINGS”. The show will extend from November 5th to November 23rd, 2013, with a reception to meet the artist on Thursday, November 7th, 6-8pm.
Deborah Sudran finds infinite inspiration in nature and has been experiencing that inspiration for decades. She’s not an ordinary nature painter, but paints out of a love for the colors, forms and space that nature presents, particularly up close. There is no horizon line seen in these works for the viewer’s vision is immersed in the elements and forms of plants.
Carrying her camera, she aims close up, and though the paintings that result are realistic, the artist is primarily interested in the abstract patterns created by the plants, the light and the atmosphere surrounding them. Her approach to composition creates almost a carpet of color and texture.
In this exhibit of new work, Sudran continues her passionate involvement with nature as the primary subject matter of her oil paintings. The nature she is inspired by can be found close to home in the New York Botanical Gardens or on her frequent travels throughout the world. She finds garden, jungle and desert flora equally inspiring. The artist confesses she rarely does paintings of tulips or roses because she doesn’t find the compositions they create so interesting, preferring more dramatic compositions of color and form.
Sudran studied at the Kansas City Art Institute and the University of Michigan. The artist has shown in numerous group and solo shows including the Aldrich Museum, the Museum of the Hudson Highlands and Cornwall on Hudson. Her paintings were recently featured at TAI Exhibits where the TAI Group cultivates an intersection between art and business through its exhibitions. She is in numerous prestigious corporate collections, including AT&T, IBM and Pfizer.
We look forward to your joining us at this exciting new exhibit at Viridian Artists.
