Sandler Hudson Gallery announces recent works by Atlanta artists, Elizabeth Lide and Elizabeth Sheppell. Atlanta artist Marshall Davis will exhibit a recent work on the roof.
Elizabeth Lide’s work explores elements of nature. An avid gardener, Lide’s work is heavily guided by what she sees around her. This new body of work is titled “Recordings.” “The drawings and paintings in this exhibition were created in June 2011 at the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts (VCCA), an artist colony in Amherst, Virginia. They are recordings, notes, suggestions and memories, stored as colors and textures within a framework of grids; almost like swatches or parts of something larger; intimate observations and joyful connections of small things converging in a quiet place. Papers are handmade Kozo and Gampi and materials are collage, graphite pencils, watercolors, oil sticks, Japanese ink and paper pulp.”
Sheppell’s new body of work, “Surfaces” is an exploration of structures and layering. “Pushing the paintings further and finding new shapes and surfaces has been an exciting avenue that I plan to continue with. I have loosely named the smaller groupings “The Fat Series”. There is a bold and raw quality behind these pieces. I work intuitively to create all my paintings. They are a reflection of the energy and state of mind when created. I want the tactile seduction of paint that inspires me to come through to the viewer.”
