"The soul of my work is rooted in the Japanese concept of wabi-sabi, which celebrates the beauty in things imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete. With an emphasis on process, I create highly textured surfaces by responding to the changes in the picture as I explore and interact with my materials by layering paint and paper, mark-making and erasing, altering and adjusting. This exercise of adding and subtracting allows me to reduce the image to the essence of my visual narrative." - Teri Dryden

Suki Kuss 

“The size and shape of a canvas does not dictate the time and amount of work that goes into the piece. This series of 12x12 collages are delicate and detailed, requiring many hours of intense work and scrutiny. Working on small canvases allows me the opportunity to enlarge and magnify areas of my larger pieces and work not yet created but living within me.

The 12x12’s are a statement of the mood in which they were created... they are either black and white or a combination of the two. Accent colors such as gold or red may appear as a stabilizing factor. The lack of bright color is a signature of my work and allows the viewer to absorb the shapes and elements that balance the individual pieces.

The work, Music City, is 20x60 in size and does contain color. The building and shaping of the piece required a lyrical note and the color added a musical note to the piece.


Night Music, also 20x60, was created in the palette that I live with and is the soul of this body of work. The movement is intriguing and mysterious to the viewer and asks questions to be answered by the individual.” - Suki Kuss

"There is definitely an evolutionary process to being an artist. Somewhere along the line, we each picked up a camera and started taking photos of what we each thought was interesting. With each photograph we learned what we enjoyed and practiced our techniques, especially in Street Photography. With each day spent in our darkrooms, we learned the excitement of developing those photographs, as well as the art of manipulation. Eventually, we took our photographs and started manipulating them on the computer. Our abstracts were created, and another step in the evolution process was embraced. From using our photographs, to creating an abstraction from scratch was a logical progression. With the vast array of computer art software, we have evolved from ‘where we were’, to ‘where we are’. For each of us the evolution of our abstract images continues and shows no signs of slowing down." - Cheryl Hrudka / Stan Johnson ( Recent Developments, LLC)

“Circles of Life”

ArtistStatement

The concept of a circle has been imbued with sacred meanings and considered in philosophical discourse since ancient times. It is the basis of scientific theories, and the foundation of spiritual oneness and continuity.

I have an intense need for seasons. I am deeply moved by nature's cycles of rebirth and inevitable reclamation. The rhythm of seasonal change plays softly in the background of my daily life, measuring my days, and choreographing the dances of my creative muse. It throbs inside me as surely as my own heart beats, reminding me of the certain constant of change.

These circles of art are snapshots of my moments in the dance, always moving and turning, always repeating, yet never the same. Our lives are full of such moments, these tics on the arcs of our lives, marking what was for posterity. Together, they record songs of our soul, the bitter-sweet music of time.
