Susannah Coffey at Steven Harvey Fine Art Projects

Susanna Coffey - ElementalOh, how I wish I could see this show! Susannah Coffey was a professor at my alma mater, and I came this close > || to taking a class with her. It was Figure in the Landscape at Oxbow summer art camp, and she was to co-teach it with Dan Gustin, another great professor, but he showed, and she didn’t.

I did attend at least one self-portrait show of hers during my years in Chicago, and it was amazing. You can see her self-portraits here: http://www.susannacoffey.com/?cat=3

“Steve Locke wrote (from the show’s page below) that, “Coffey is painting a new kind of space… She is painting the interference, the attitudes, the obfuscations between the understanding of the self.“”

If you’re in NY, I hope you get to see the show. If you’re not, some night, indulge in a little sumpin’ and stare at her paintings online.

Vision is the art of seeing the invisible. It is the ability to see something that only you can see, something that others do not see because this something does not have a physical reality. It is something you see in your minds eye, something that exists in your imagination, something that is within yourself.

  • It’s always fun to read others’ comments. Where one sees draped fabric, to me, it’s a landscape with a wild and crazy storm in the sky bringing blessed rain.
