Seasons of Change is an exhibition of paintings by SuHua Chen Low, documenting the ever-changing transitioning landscapes around her. It’s a very popular saying that, “change is the only constant in life.” Life, relationships, neighborhoods, workplaces, age and almost everything is all about change. The key to growth and success is adapting and embracing the change. The artist goes beyond what the eye sees in the environment of landscape, surroundings, and people to capture the essence and feeling in an image. The exhibits open October 22nd through November 20th, 2021, Monday through Saturday, 11am-4pm. Free to the public, Masks required.
Seasons of Change embraces the ever-expressive landscape and seasonal surroundings SuHua Chen Low witnesses every day at her home in New Jersey. SuHua, born in Taiwan, represents a unique convergence of Western oil painting technique with traditional Chinese landscape art and water and ink paintings. She creates passionate works of intensity with striking colors, inherent vitality, and poetic lyricism.
Cameras capture images of what stands before them. SuHua goes beyond what a camera sees to show the essence of the landcapes she paints. When Low sees a tree, she hears the music of the tree, senses its poetry and feels its meaning. She portrays in her paintings a stronger essence than the actual object. The artistic mood of her paintings is depicted through a “splash” technique, influenced by traditional Chinese water and ink paintings. One experiences something deeper and richer each time they revisit a painting.
SuHua studied painting from Taiwan master artists Shih-Ciao Li and Ke-Mei Li receiving guidance on painting skills and inspirations of art. This is the foundation of her Western and Chinese painting works. SuHua has exhibited in Taiwan, the Reeves Reed Arboretum, Summit NJ, Straube Center, Pennington, NJ, Shimon and Sara Birnbaum Center in Bridgewater, NJ, the Bendheim Gallery of Greenwich Art Council, Greenwich, CT.
