Art People Gallery Presents "Air Play"--- New Paintings by SUSAN Z. BREYER

Show: Oct. 1st-24th, 2012

Reception: Oct. 13, 5-8pm

"Air Play" is a collection of large "skyscapes" on steel canvases. Viewers are encouraged to interact with the works, by moving smaller, "floating cloud" canvases over the larger foundation work, allowing for a fresh perspective and perhaps changing the overall tenor of a piece. "Air Play" reflects Breyer's desire to evoke the human experience we all share in taking in the fleeting beauty, power and majesty of the sky. She sees skies as our common canvases, reacquainting us with who we are and of what we dream.

Breyer says of the "Air Play" paintings, "Each of us has stepped outside, looked up and bestowed on the sky a wish for joy, a whoop of gratitude, a sigh of frustration, a cry of pain. It is our universal canvas, inspiring wonder and awe, worry and fear. The sky can elevate our mood or bring on the blues. Skies are at once constant and ephemeral, powerful and weightless, translucent and lush, brilliantly-hued and barely tinged with the softest of grey, imbued with our feelings and impossible to hold. We use the sky as a template for our dreams, letting the clouds carry us to a place of possibility. These "Air Play" paintings, reflect my love of looking up, allowing for hope and are for me, a chance to capture the unobtainable, to shape the sky.
