Sue Tower & Kentree Speirs

At Blackfish Gallery

Mon, Oct 30 to Sat, Dec 02

show

First Thursday: November 2, 6-9pm

The plasticity of paint can be keenly observed this month as two painters with strong technical facility and radically different subject matter, style and process exhibit together. Sue Tower attacks the canvas with speed and abandon to produce impastoed, primitive abstractions, while Kentree Speirs carefully applies multiple layers of color and form to arrive at transparent and seamless abstract landscapes.

Tower’s 35-year painting career took a startling turn five years ago when she veered from the painstaking process she used for rendering realistic imagery to the spontaneous approach she uses in her current, non-objective work. Whereas before, a painting could take up to four months to complete, the new paintings require anywhere from a day to two weeks. Putting pressure on herself to move quickly through each painting, Tower invites risk into her new process.
