Susan Eley Fine Art is pleased to present their spring show FOUND IN TRANSLATION a two-person exhibition featuring new paintings by Franco-British artist Sarah Picon, and paintings by Los Angeles based artist Chase Langford.
This is Sarah Picon’s second solo show at the gallery. Her intimate still lifes, portraits and landscapes evoke European Modernism in its many artistic styles and movements, glimpsed through a contemporary lens. In the South Gallery, the grouping of more than a dozen paintings include small works in acrylic of fruit or flowers resting on tables, portraits of women in profile or in contemplation and seated at a table.
Chase Langford has been featured in two group exhibitions at SEFA and one solo exhibition. The selected abstract paintings in the North Gallery are drawn from his Morphic series of biomorphic and organic forms, and his Del Mar series, featuring a more linear style, suggesting striations or waterways. As we look at Langford’s paintings, a funny thing happens to the mind. We recall birds eye views of landscapes glimpsed from airplanes. But seen from a different vantage point, we could be looking into a cross section of a magnificent rock or gemstone.
The exhibition is from April 20-June 1, 2017 with an opening reception on Thursday, April 20, 6-8 PM.
