Studio Gallery Art of the Day

At the top of the stairway on the way to the third floor of the gallery I was captivated by one of Suzanne Yurdin's mixed media works, "Carnivale." This vibrant painting has an intense energy established by the strong contrast of cool and warm tones of color. The different textures created by the incorporation of what seems to be pieces of wallpaper, newsprint, and paper cut outs add to the activity going on in the painting. The shapes and lines move forcefully in juxtaposing directions and kept my eyes bouncing around the entire canvas as I took in the many elements of the work.
