 Deborah Sudran
February 8th- 26th, 2011
Reception Saturday, February 12th, 4-6 PM

Chelsea, NYC: Viridian Artists is pleased to present new work by Deborah Sudran. Entitled “Paintings”, the exhibition opens Tuesday, February 8th and extends through Saturday, February 26th with a reception Saturday, February 12th, 4-6 PM. 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, and though her paintings are painterly, her allover composition creates almost a carpet of color and texture. The works don’t have the sense of being painted from photographs though Sudran first photographs her subjects. Not focussed on the specific subject matter of nature, the artist is instead fascinated by the abstraction and hues of nature seen up close, whether in gardens, deserts or forests. Sudran studied at the Kansas City Art Institute and the University of Michigan. Though the artist has shown in numerous group and solo shows including the Aldrich Museum, the Museum of the Hudson Highlands and Cornwall on Hudson, this is her first solo since 1996. She is in numerous prestigious corporate collections, including AT&T, IBM and Pfizer. Gallery hours: Tuesday through Sat
