Valery Sutherland, “Diverse Landscapes” at Middlesex Community College

Elements #78, acrylic, canvas, 40 x 30 in. 2021.JPG

Valery Sutherland, “Diverse Landscapes” at Middlesex Community College

Reception on Tuesday, October 4th, 5-7 p.m. in Pegasus Gallery

Valery Sutherland’s landscape paintings attempt to address the passage of time. The ancient elements of earth, water, air and fire are illustrated in some of her ‘Elements’ paintings, together with old blueprints of buildings or towns that are now crisscrossed by roads, indicating future development that will forever alter the land. Clouds of varying hues and configurations convey a sense of mystery and impermanence in a sky which is continually evolving.

Sutherland’s interest in the strange and irregular forms of old, pollarded trees, such as the Burnham Beeches in England, led her to digitally colorize black and white images of some of the trees that she then used as inspiration to create her ‘Pollard’ paintings. The paintings are an amalgam of black and white and color.
The artist’s most recent paintings, ‘The Window’ and ‘Window Reflections’, are based on digital imagery of the reflection on a black granite countertop of the forest behind Sutherland’s house.

Sutherland has exhibited her artwork throughout New England, New York and New Jersey for over thirty years. She studied art in the United Kingdom at Tunbridge Wells Art School, in Kent, and St. Martin’s Art School, in London. See more of her work at: www.valerysutherland.com
