Susan Brewer: Impromptu Explorations
May 5 - 26, 2017 | M-F 9-5pm and until 6pm on Thursdays
Gallery 924 presents the latest series of mixed media abstractions from Creative Renewal Arts Fellow and longtime Stutz Artist Resident, Susan Brewer. Her work is inspired by dreams and meditation. The large canvases employ bold color, texture, and suggested forms to evoke images that explore one's relationship to the environment, to others, and oneself. Brewer's work begins with a gesture of graphite on paper or a wash of paint on canvas. She then intuitively follows her innate impluse to explore the material and capture its essence in the form of energy.
This new work is the result of her 2015-2016 Creative Renewal Arts Fellowship awared by the Arts Council of Indianapolis. This pivotal experience brought on by the Fellowship period resulted in a time of relection and renewed motivation. The Fellowship not only allowed her more time and space to explore large-scale canvases, but also smaller works on paper, and to return to her early career in ceramics.
