Scott Sueme – Bone Broth
The Toronto Gallery is showcasing this Vancouver-based artist's latest body of work from October 5 - 31. Join the artist at the opening reception on October 5, 2 - 5 pm.
Mayberry Fine Art is pleased to present ‘Bone Broth’ by Vancouver based abstract painter Scott Sueme. This is the artist’s first solo exhibition with the gallery.
Scott Sueme’s paintings broadly follow a rubric of energetic interaction, where the juxtaposition of two colors is meant to create what he refers to as an “edge”: two off-whites, a pale and warm variant of the same hue, or two colors that match in value but clash in tone, for example. While color quality makes up the main subject of his work, Sueme’s recent compositions speak to an ongoing investigation of balance and arrangement. As form and colour are composed, we experience their interactions as moments of playful conversation, where elements vibrate with one another and settle in harmony.
In this new series, colour becomes a vehicle to examine how we mentally map our experiences, finding connections between memories and moments. Using a culinary analog, Bone Broth, as an ingredient, is both simple and complex by nature. It can modestly stand as the foundation or medium to a formal recipe, while on its own is created with patience and time, rooted in practicality by its origin. It is a renewal of its past form, upcycled into something new. The artist looks to question his own heritage and its role in the creative process through painting and the passage of time.
