Elizabeth Kruger – The Sea Paintings @ Nancy Sever Gallery

5 July – 6 Aug 2017

Elizabeth Kruger paints the sea in all of its rock bound power and energy. Her exhibition at Nancy Sever Gallery earlier this month was a demonstration of her sense of the sea.

I know little of her work and expect she does all sorts of subjects but this show was all focused on her love of the ocean.
