Elisa Contemporary Art has curated FLEETING in the Front Room at Susan Eley Fine Art in Manhattan. FLEETING is an exploration of time, place and movement. It captures the essence of subjects – often just a moment in time – before life changes and transforms into something new forever. From the muscular movement of thoroughbreds in Ken Peloke’s equestrian paintings to the otherworldly presence in Connie Firestone’s abstracted figures.
It is a journey with two stylistically different artists, yet with a shared idea. The exhibited body of work share a circle of life – inspired by one just beginning and the other passing.
The exhibit runs through July 31st at Susan Eley Fine Art, 46 West 90th Street, New York. Click here for more details.
