  • Denver Opening

    "FIRE & WATER", my exhibition with artist Ralph Wiegmann, opens Friday November 30th at Visions West Contemporary in Denver's downtown Rino District at 6pm. Please join us if you're in town!

    Please join us Friday Nov 30th at 6 pm for cocktails and hors d'oeuvres to celebrate the opening of Fire and Water. Artists Suzanne Truman and Ralph Wiegmann have combined forces again to create a compelling collaborative series. The patterns, sensations and rhythms of nature have been an early influence on the art of both artists, directing them to create intuitive works that reflect experiences within the natural world. 
    The works that appear in this vibrant series continue to meditate on these notions of pattern, color, and texture in nature. This in-depth collaboration has led the artists to a particular essence in their works that is focused on the elemental interplay of fire and water and the destructive as well as regenerative nature of these two things.
    Formerly residents of Bozeman, MT, the artists currently live, work and teach in Wisconsin. For more of Suzanne's work click here, and for Ralph's, click here.denver

  • 23 1/2 degrees North

    This triptych will be part of an installation at an upcoming show at Visions West Contemporary in Denver. inspired by the summer equinox and glow of the night sky around the solstice: 23 1/2 degrees North (Midnight), carbonized graphite & encaustic on wood, 12"x56"x4"

     

    Equinoxes are determined by the earth's axial tilt of 23 1/2 degrees which causes the magnetic north pole to "wobble" in a slow circle around the north pole of the ecliptic True North as the earth spins and revolves around the sun. The position of the equinoxes moves slightly every year against the background of stars located in the band of sky defined on earth by the Tropic of Cancer at 23 1/2 degrees north (of the equator).
