Life Unfolded: The Power of Pastels
Exhibition of work by Susan Typert, PAC, MPAC
Feb 2 – 23, 2019
Opening Reception Saturday Feb 2, 1-3 pm
“Life Unfolded” is about capturing the purity of a moment. Susan Typert unleashes the power of pastels to freeze-frame daily life to uncover the remarkable and the profound. Detail gives way to passion and energy as blossoms, boxers and brew masters take the stage. Here is a colourist’s take on landscape, portraiture, nature and floral work. Much of the work is derived from local scenes and establishments throughout Uxbridge, Wellington, Port Hope, Port Perry and Kingston. Susan Typert is an award-winning artist who works from her studio in Whitby, Ontario. Susan holds Master Pastelist status with Pastel Artists of Canada.
I strive to be painterly and impressionistic with a touch of colourist in my work. Capturing the energy and essence of the moment is just as critical to me as capturing the light. Pushing the traditional boundaries of pastels by seeing the potential compositions in a broad range of subjects, I hope to extend the frontiers through both subject matter and application.
