FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
BERRY CAMPBELL GALLERY TO REPRESENT SUSAN VECSEY
NEW YORK, NEW YORK, March 26, 2014 – BERRY CAMPBELL is pleased to announce the representation of New York-based painter, SUSAN VECSEY. Vecsey is widely held in both public and private collections and most recently, Guild Hall Museum, East Hampton, acquired White Main Beach for their permanent collection.
Born in Somerville, NJ and raised in Franklin Lakes, Vecsey earned her BA from Barnard College, Columbia University and her MFA from New York Studio School of Drawing, Painting and Sculpture, studying under Graham Nickson. A painter interested in creating lyrical and poetic themes, Vecsey uses iconic imagery inspired by nature. References to representational imagery are a starting point, a vehicle to convey a certain emotion and for the exploration of color, form and shape. “There is a great pleasure in the whole process of creating from the anticipation, the processing to the realization.” Vecsey’s oil stained linen and paper works carry on the Color Field and Minimalist traditions in a contemporary context. Her ideas begin with charcoal drawings on paper made from perception followed by elaborate color studies. The paint is then thinned and poured directly on to the linen or paper allowing it to flow naturally with some guidance from the artist. “With poured paint, timing is everything, and it is important to be decisive with it and also ready to accept or reject the unexpected.”
Vecsey was recently included in Guild Hall’s Selections from the Permanent Collection curated by Christina Strassfield and at the Holiday House Hamptons curated by Mabley Handler Design, Bridgehampton. Her work debuted with Berry Campbell last month at Art Wynwood and will be featured in a two-person exhibition at their Chelsea location, June 5-July 3, 2014.
SUSAN VECSEY lives and works in East Hampton, NY and New York City.
