Suzann Phelan Denny & Catherine Parker: Here and There
Recent Works

Friday, September 17, 2010-Saturday, October 16, 2010

Suzann Phelan Denny

“My work is a learning experience related to reference from the northern regions of Cape Cod where I have spent time in recent years. The atmosphere as grassy, scrubby, windy, warm and also chilly was new to me. I felt challenged to imbue these characteristics in the surface movement of landscape work. The interiors are quiet spaces enhanced with the abstraction of light and implications of lost provenance. I want the viewer to know that I notice them: what they regard and how I respond to what they have touched or made or used. Compelled by the past and presence of the figure in non-figurative spaces, my work, in pastel, seeks to present a human touch without disguise.”

Catherine Parker

“In my work, the images come from the natural world, but my inspiration comes from words and music. For this series, I chose to paint my idea of the city at night , in the rain. I wandered out, many times, just at dusk, and was intrigued by the reflections, the colors, the shapes. The edges of the buildings can seem to dissolve in the rain, and the reflections become more prominent than the subject. This is what I have tried to communicate in this series of works.”

And who art thou? said I to the soft-falling shower,
Which, strange to tell, gave me an answer, as here translated:
I am the Poem of Earth, said the voice of the rain,
Eternal I rise impalpable out of the land and the bottomless sea,
Upward to heaven, whence, vaguely form'd, altogether changed, and
yet the same,
I descend to lave the drouths, atomies, dust-layers of the globe,
And all that in them without me were seeds only, latent, unborn;
And forever, by day and night, I give back life to my own origin,
and make pure and beautify it;
(For song, issuing from its birth-place, after fulfillment, wandering,
Reck'd or unreck'd, duly with love returns.)

- Walt Whitman (1819-1892)
