Suzanne Vaughan Feature

  • Basic Space Gallery 327 Northwest 9th Avenue Portland, OR, 97209 United States (map)

Basic Space Gallery is pleased to announce our newest addition to the gallery line up of Represented Artist, Suzanne Vaughan. On display in April, will be a featured exhibition of her oil paintings in the Shimmer series, one of which is pictured as the cover photo here. 
The artist describes the series below:

"The Shimmer Series is a colorful, atmospheric series which explores themes of optimism, strength and growth. These concepts are expressed through the incorporation of both metallic pigments and a fresh, soft color palette. The metal anchors the piece, acting as a connection to the earth while the light, bright colors radiate up to the sky, taking the mind to that place where inspiration is born. These pieces are a shimmering oasis, a respite from the frenetic distractions of the world.

My personal journey over the last year involved a lot of introspection. I felt the need to withdraw to the safety and comfort of my studio, to find a sense peace and harmony in a world fraught with chaotic events. I painted a balanced and loving world inside each painting, each a part of my vision of beauty and positivity. It’s the kind of energy I want to share with the world - a place of rest and rejuvenation injected with a charge of positive energy and vitality."

The exhibit will open on April 5th and extend to April 29th.
The remaining walls of the gallery will display the other Represented Artists.
