Susan Paulsen, “Pawnal”
While we picked this particular shot, the exhibit is predominantly color with some nice portrait work. The overall positive impression is derived from the honesty of the artist in trying to connect with the viewer.
Vicki Goldberg writes:
Life’s major moments and cataclysms generally arrive with fanfare, but existence tends to be daily, and days fill up with insignificant matters that mean more than they say. Paulsen’s life is replete with family, a house, a kitchen, a laundry line, a bed, several dogs, the sea, fruit, sunlight that steals a march on expectations, colors that reverberate, shadows that venture into the avant-garde, and a model who is perfectly comfortable doffing her clothes – Sarah, whose name rhymes with Paulsen’s grandmother’s and who stands in for the photographer.
Now through April 30.
