zsuzsanna szegedi

i remember the first time i saw zsuzsanna szegedi's work in boston at a gallery we were both a part of, me as a student, her as a full fledge artist member.  her series forest removed depicted these amazing tree formations in enchanting colors taking shape on these large, stark white canvases.  i was hooked immediately.  the kind of work that makes me search out the show postcard so i can keep a little piece of the art with me forever in my sketchbook.



flash forward a few months and i end up helping zsuzsanna search out some extra large canvases at the art supplies store i was working at during college.  not only was her work amazing, she was unbelievably nice.  seeing an artist whose work you adore in the store, searching out the paints and supplies to create their work is something i always loved about working in an art store.. something about the process of someone's work is so inspiring.



anyway.. i looked up zsuzanna's work today to see what she has been working on and i wasn't disappointed.  her work is still bright, bold and large, challenging negative and positive space in nature.  i'd love to have one of these on my walls!
