Red Light - 2009
oil, acrylic on canvas
40 x 48 in. (101.6 x 122 cm)
Stephanie Brody-Lederman creates paintings and works on paper that explore familiar images, which appear naïve. There is an interplay of word and image revealing underlying psychological content. Dogs, trees, rivers and sky inhabit these works. The application of layers of paint delineate narrative and the passage of time, inviting the viewer to become engaged.
Miracle No.2 - 2008
Iron wheel, leather, sewing threads, epoxy
44d x 24h x 37w in. (111.7 x 61 x 94 cm)
This body of sculpture concerns the notion of the wheel as an integral whole. Each piece is a construction and a deconstruction of an essential wrought-iron wheel form with nothing either added or subtracted. Instead, through the process of subtle cutting and bending it is a transformation of formal definition into purely abstract composition while losing none of the conceptual source from which it derives.
Plume - 2009
oil on canvas
30 x 66 in. (76 x 167.5 cm)
Stephen Fox paints contemporary nocturnes where man-made light marks the interaction between timeless form and man's transit through a darkened world. The scenes depicted are heightened moments of stillness, landscapes where human activity punctuates the rhythms of nature.
JOHN FRANCIS MURPHY
Landscape with Orange Sky - 1892
oil on canvas
12 x 19 in. (30.5 x 48.25 cm)
The landscape paintings of this master American Tonalist are representative of his work throughout the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Seeking to convey the soul of nature, Tonalists eschewed wilderness scenes in favor of depicting intimate rural locales bathed in the transitional light of dawn or dusk, the tranquil times of the day which for the viewer may incite to wistful meditation.
Temenos 1 - 2009
acrylic, watercolor and pencil on paper
9 x 12 in. (23 x 30.5 cm)
These paintings are from a series of work entitled "Temenos" (from the Greek verb, to cut). The work is in acrylic, watercolor and pencil on paper. They're an emotional and physical response to the fecundity and wilderness of the eastern Long Island coastline. Temenos: A sacred precinct. A sacred circle where one can be his or herself without fear.
