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.

Pictures are below with gallery material.

John Scurry – Paintings @ Nancy Sever Gallery

7 June – 2 July 2017

John Scurry has an exhibition of still life paintings on at the Nancy Sever Gallery. Still life still evokes in me fruit and wine bottles on tables. Scurry plays around with the discipline of still life by creating motionless domestic issues from a consumer residential contexts. The objects included are very much more masculine than the traditional objects. A humorous element of the set is the fact that he includes quinces in some of the pictures.

The pictures within the gallery sheet below give you the sense of the set along with Nancy’s great text on the exhibition

The Art of the Gija People @ Nancy Sever Gallery

10 May – 4 June 2017

The exhibition schedule at the Nancy Sever Gallery includes a wonderful number of indigenous art shows. In May the art of the GIja People was on display. The selection of works was beautiful and the traditional vibe was everywhere. Sample pics and gallery materials are below.

Suzanne Moss – Make Light of it @ Nancy Sever Gallery

4 Feb – 5 Mar 2017

Suzanne Moss creates shimmering pastel geometric artworks. The variegated pale pastel works are intersected with varied geometric triangles, oblongs, squares and other geometric shapes  The choice of pale pastels makes viewing an activity that requires concentration. The choice of hanging the works on white walls was interesting. I tried to imagine what impact it would make to put them on a strong coloured wall.

Below is the gallery sheet and some pics but there is special depth and excitement in viewing them in a gallery.
