Sue Dirksen | Now or Never

A series of new work by Sue Dirksen that examines the amorphous tension between color, space and density. The result is a powerful intersection of fluidity and form which is both inviting and palpable. A fitting transition from her ‘light and vibration’ paintings which emphasize a cascade of vertical brush strokes over a background of color; this series goes beneath the layering to explore the underside- the matrix- in an equally meticulous and thoughtful manner. These new works seem to pulsate, allowing the viewer to break through and sink more deeply into their inviting depths.
