This event has ended.

Susan Eley announces the opening of ROCKS & RAYS: PAINITNGS BY RACHELLE KRIEGER, featuring more than a dozen paintings made in the past two years.

Work selected for this solo exhibition, titled ROCKS & RAYS after the newest series of six works , includes large - scale oil paintings on linen and panel, as well as smaller works on paper. ROCKS & RAYS is Krieger’s first solo exhibition with SEFA, following the success of t wo two - person shows: Semblance (2010) and Currents of the Mind (2013). In addition to group shows with the gallery, Krieger’s work was also exhibited with SEFA at CONTEXT Art Miami (2013 ).

As with her earlier paintings, Krieger takes her cue from nature. Her paintings from 2010 - 2013 , more representational than the current paintings, depict the artist’s reflections of the nature preserves , seascapes and woods near her home in Port Washington, NY . In her recent work Krieger has taken an exciting directional turn , painting ever more bold and dynamic abstractions of nature and nature’s forces. Krieger continues her reductive process to reveal mood, energy and nature’s fickle termperament through expressive brushwork and loose strokes. Atmospheric swaths of golden hues, blues and silvery tones are intersected with linear and swirly elements that could be read as tree trunks, branches or clouds ; and spheres that may at once be understood as boulders, planets or the sun. Yet, these geometric shapes and lines act as so much more than nature’s physical features, but serve to anchor the canvas and ignite the warm washes of atmospheric color.
