This exhibit brings with it a promise of summer. These bold, bright and colorful paintings will assist us in shaking off the cold gray of winter.

Michigan artist Susan Morosky’s enthusiasm for the physical act of painting is vividly showcased in these remarkably inspired works in acrylic on canvas. At first blush these works appear as abstraction. Further examination reveals the artist’s love of nature and the landscape. With perhaps one toe dipped in the genre of landscape the artist takes the viewer on a hopeful and uplifting trip with an expertly applied gesture of brush and colour. Beginning with the simpler concept of landscape Ms. Morosky allows the idea, the colour and the courage of nature to move her through the process of painting. In each painting, as in nature, there are passages of aggression followed by the smooth calm of a storm’s passing. Or as the warm heat of a sunny day reflects colored light from the field.

The artist explains, “the analysis takes place on the surface of the painting”, where she finds the process “akin to natural forces upon the physical world.”
