SOJOURNS IN NATURE

May 22 - June 16, 2019
Artists' Reception: Saturday, May 25, 2-5pm
Artists' Talk: Saturday, June 8, 1pm

Cerulean Arts is pleased to present Sojourns in Nature, featuring paintings by Ruslan Khais, Gerry Tuten and Magda Vitale. A love of nature and the act of painting drive these artists’ exuberant explorations. For Ruslan Khais, the physicality of paint, color, gesture and form are of paramount importance. Straddling representation and abstraction, his paintings are inspired by a particular place, at a particular time, under specific atmospheric conditions. Inspired by the beauty of the natural world, Gerry Tuten infuses her acrylic paintings with visceral texture, color, and movement. She finds delight and joy in the tension ignited between her intense observations and instinctive mark-making. Magda Vitale’s colorful, gestural paintings become a diary of her life: experiences, dreams and memories infuse her observations of nature. Landscape patterns, sky, flowers and even seed pods become points of departure for her artistic explorations.
