Landscapes of the Imagination by Suzy Scarborough
November 7, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Opening Reception for Landscapes of the Imagination.
This is Suzy Scarborough’s first solo exhibition in Texas. Scarborough is a self-taught artist who has been creating work since 1992. To her, the work is an intuitive conversation between the brush and the painting. Scarborough begins her work with a collage of book pages from a variety of sources, combining early 19th century engravings with more modern materials such as botanical drawings, maps, or scientific textbooks. As she adds acrylic, oil pastels, and watercolor to the surface, the pieces take on a surreal dreamscape quality, reminiscent of misty forests or luminous watery gardens. The finished result is a gossamer surface which evolves in the changing daylight from morning to dusk. These gorgeous pieces must be seen in person to be fully appreciated.
