Redbud Gallery presents Susan Budge: "Gifts, Guardians & Objects of Affection" opening reception
Redbud Gallery will present “Gifts, Guardians & Objects of Affection,” a solo exhibition by artist Susan Budge, featuring works resulting from 40 years of exploration in clay. Reflections on life, Budge has explored sculptural forms by embracing the work ethic of the surrealists - working spontaneously in the studio and allowing forms to emerge from the subconscious.
The cut, or interlocking forms present in this body of work reference a meditative practice, while her love of nature and the human figure is revealed in the curving, bulbous forms. Her fascination with mystery is illustrated with the human eye, peering from abstract works. The objects of affection are the small forms that reference the quote from Kandinsky that "Everything has a secret soul, which is silent more often than it speaks.”
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display until November 26.
