Tangles, foliage, figures + riots of colour.
Susan J. Falk’s exhibition Living Colour, held at The Fort Gallery May 17-June 4, showcases her trademark colourist strokes. Working primarily in a pure colour palette using oil paint, her landscapes bring the viewer into the world of a walk the artist took while visiting Campbell Valley Regional Park in South Langley – an entangled mass of water, multi-coloured foliage and brambles. Also joining this colour fest are Falk’s figurative works with models artfully arranged ,clothed and unclothed, drenched in colour.
The opening reception for this breathtaking new exhibit will be held Sunday, May 21st, 1-4pm. Falk will speak about her work at our June First Thursday event, June 1st, 7-9pm.
Susan recently received the 2013 Langley Environmental Hero Award in the Individual Category for keeping local residents and others aware of the need to protect Mclellan Forest East, Langley’s public land old growth forest in Glen Valley. Susan conceived of a plan to collaborate with poets to produce a series of paintings that depicted scenes of the forest echoed in the words of the poets. The result was a series of 12 paintings from the poems of 12 poets. All paintings were successfully bid on through silent auction at The Fort Gallery resulting in a sold out show to benefit the non-profit group Watchers of Langley Forests (WOLF) in their efforts to save the forest and gain further recognition for their efforts to do so.
