Current Work features a selection of Woldman Elfer's new paintings -- highly textured impasto surfaces with landscape imagery. Painting on wood panels, the artist brings her sculptor's sensibility: marking and scratching into the surface to create depth, expansion, movement and light.
Free and open to the public daily.
This installation is presented by Midtown Arts Common in cooperation with Saint Peter's Church.
About the work"By limiting my palette I'm able to more freely explore the dynamic of space. It's a great challenge because I often rely on color when I don't know where to go. In these paintings my focus is to resolve the image through light and reflection. My favorite painting is always the one I'm working on at the time," says Woldman Elfer.
About the artistCleveland born artist Susan Woldman Elfer attended Simon's Rock College, received her B.A.
from Sarah Lawrence College and went on to receive her M.F.a. at School of Visual Arts in New York City where she has lived for the past thirty years.
