Counterbalance at Susan Eley Fine Art

by | Sep 30, 2020 | Blog post

Susan Eley Fine Art is delighted to present Counterbalance, the first show hanging in their New York City location since the world came to a halt in mid-March. They are looking forward to welcoming visitors back to view abstraction by Lisa Fellerson and Liz Rundorff Smith.

Counterbalance is a two-person exhibition on view in their Upper West Side gallery through October 22, 2020. The exhibition will be on view by appointment only.

The show features seven large acrylic paintings on canvas and four small watercolors by Wisconsin-based artist Lisa Fellerson and nine oil paintings in varying sizes as well as four smaller works on paper by South Carolinian Liz Rundorff Smith.

While each artist approaches abstraction from different places, Fellerson and Rundorff Smith share the characteristic of being skilled colorists and masters at layering their oils and acrylics. Blocks of color come forward while other parts recede, lopsided shapes find their footing against other wedges, but nothing feels unsteady. Just as each painting finds balance within itself, each artist balances the other. Counterbalance is both Fellerson’s and Rundorff Smith’s first two-person exhibition with SEFA.
