GLOUCESTER, Mass., Sept. 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Trident Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of Susan Erony's art of testimony, remembrance, and affirmation of the human capacity for good and evil.
Erony's work has been exhibited in museums and galleries in Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Italy, and throughout North America, and has been collected by leading institutions and private collectors.
Susan Erony: Review reintroduces collectors and the public to the artist's disciplined and forceful body of work from 1993 to the present, and to her themes of inhumanity and displacement, the solace and refuge of art, and the interplay of innocence, knowing, and not wanting to know.
In her most recent work, Erony continues to employ unusual and freighted materials in mixed media constructions - cement, seaweed, silk, lead, rust, and burned paper - and haunting images of her own eyes become potent emblems of a moral witness.
The gallery will host a public reception for the artist on Saturday, September 13, 5–7pm. The artist will lead a discussion of her work at the gallery on Sunday, September 21, 5–6pm.
"Every piece Erony makes is a profoundly thoughtful artistic statement," says Trident Gallery Director Matthew Swift. Review includes "To Gloucester, with Love," a 69-foot length of silk inscribed with Charles Olson's epic Maximus Poems; "The Zimas," a large-scale oil portrait of a Polish family murdered by the Nazis; "Promised Land," a mixed media painting incorporating the lining of a coat belonging to her father, who came to the United States as a refugee from anti-Semitic violence in Ukraine; and "Listening Ritual," a mixed media painting embedded with thousands of pieces of steel shot, individually glued.
"I believe that art can save the world," states Susan Erony. "I expect still in my heart that if one sees a great painting that one will become enlightened, and that's what keeps me going."
