A Gathering Quiet: Metalpoint Paintings and Drawings by Susan Schwalb at Galerie Mourlot

NEW YORK, NY.- Galerie Mourlot presents its second solo exhibition of new paintings and drawings by Susan Schwalb.

Susan Schwalb’s new series of carefully constructed silverpoint paintings uses delicate horizontal lines and bands, drawn across layered fields of color, to create serene and meditative works.

Layering, line and light are Schwalb’s signatures. Each individual silverpoint line which she attentively places over a field of acrylic color adds a layer of movement to her painting. The result is a quiet and compelling vibration of color and line. The paintings in this new series are composed of subtle hues of pale peach, subdued pink, pastel blue and muted gold, evoking natural forces. These panels are carefully beveled so that the imagery seems to float off the wall. While her works are essentially abstract, the carefully chosen titles do provoke certain readings. Aspects of her art suggest movement, change, and even weather and time of day. Susan Schwalb transcends the unforgiving medium of silverpoint to deliver works that radiate a powerful spiritual presence.

The exhibition will continue through March 12, 2011. It is accompanied by a catalogue with an essay by Christine Temin, art critic for The Boston Globe for over two decades and currently a freelance writer.

Susan Schwalb is one of the foremost figures in the revival of the ancient technique of silverpoint drawing in America. Her oeuvre ranges from drawings on paper to artist books and paintings on canvas or wood panels. Susan Schwalb is represented in major public collections, including the Museum of Modern Art, New York, the National Gallery, Wash. D.C., The British Museum, London, The Brooklyn Museum, NY, The Fogg Art Museum, Harvard University, Kupferstichkabinett - Staatliche Museen zu Berlin, Germany, Victoria and Albert Museum, London, Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, TX, The Achenbach Foundation of Graphic Arts, Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, The Library of Congress, Washington, DC, The Ashmolean Museum, Oxford, England, The Rose Art Museum, Brandeis University, Waltham, MA, Yale University Art Gallery, New Haven, CT, Rhode Island School of Design Museum of Art and the Arkansas Arts Center, Little Rock, AK.
