An auspicious numerical figure, three is often a representation of balance, harmony, and completion. The newest exhibit at Gallery4 expresses the essence of these attributes with elegance and cohesion. The works of three bold contemporary artists, Ruth Hamill, Susan Strauss, and Harry Nadler are on display in a brilliant showcase of color and imagery under the wing of Gallery4. Amidst dazzling red rugs and decorative art within the centrally located gallery, TRIO: Texture, Stucture, Passion is a must-see this summer.
Coming together for the first time, the three artists represent a range of passionate expression. Ruth Hamill is a native of Massachusetts and blends various oil painting techniques with ancient ritual, infusing her landscape inspired paintings with historic reverence, volume, and graceful commotion. Susan Strauss has showcased at the Gallery before, but her evocative works are just as stunning the second time; washes of vibrant colors vibrate on the canvas giving viewers an emotional impression of movement and serenity. Lastly we gaze upon the late Harry Nadler‘s geometric masterpieces. His structured work varies greatly from the fluidity of the two surrounding female artists, yet the depth and intelligence of the paintings together provide ample congruence. Nadler’s beloved paintings along with Strauss and Hamill reminded us of the magnetism and seduction of lines, value, and color.
