Studio Gallery Intern Review

Suzanne Goldberg's lovely painting "Africa" is a beautiful depiction of African wildlife. It appears as a caveman drawing because of how the simple shapes and lines come together to create a water buffalo or a wildebeest, also the values of grey and brown blend to create a soft mood to the piece. The jagged lines produce texture that brings the viewer up closet see how the texture was created, and the blue lines stand out because of their large contrast against the neutral colors throughout the piece. The use of light and dark area puts emphasis on the anima sand guide the viewer to the subjects. Suzanne's amazing use of color and texture makes this piece a striking window into prehistoric life.
