Japan Earthquake/Tsunami Disaster is Focus of Artist Michelle Suna’s New Series


Show opens Sat., May 21 in ‘The Big Show 6,’ Silas Marder Gallery, Bridgehampton, New York

A new painting series by renowned artist Michelle Suna, entitled Japan 3.11.11, honors the Japan Earthquake/Tsunami Disaster, the most powerful earthquake ever recorded in Japan that unleashed a tsunami and took thousands of lives.

This series of 3 paintings is part of the exhibition, ‘The Big Show 6’ that includes 53 artists commissioned to make 3, 8×10” paintings which will be on display at Silas Marder Gallery in Bridgehampton, from May 21 through June 22, 2011. The opening reception is on Saturday, May 21, from 5:00 – 9:00 p.m.

WHAT: Opening Reception & Exhibition of ‘The Big Show 6’. Meet artist Michelle Suna, whose abstract series of three, 8×10″ paintings entitled “Japan 3.11.11” honors the Japan Earthquake/Tsunami Disaster. The exhibition will be on display though June 22nd.

WHO: Michelle Suna has been painting for close to 30 years and drew national attention when two of her paintings were featured in major motion pictures: Incoming Storm Over Sagg Pond was featured in “Hitch” starring Will Smith, and Poppie Blossoms In the Wind was featured in “Music & Lyrics” starring Hugh Grant and Drew Barrymore.

Other artists in the show include Billy Sullivan and Giancarlo Impiglia.

WHEN: Private Opening Reception Saturday, May 21, 2011, 5:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.; Exhibition May 21 through June 22, 2011

WHERE: Silas Marder Gallery, 120 Snake Hollow Road, Bridgehampton, NY 11932, Phone: 631-702-2306

WHY: Michelle Suna captures her vision of the sea’s massive displacement into the land, obliterating life, as the people, animals and environment were forever lost or traumatically changed. Shinto, the indigenous spirituality of the Japanese people means “Way of the Gods”, some who are depicted as water and wind compounding nature’s horror.

These 3, 8×10″ works are the artist’s expression of prayer for all that Japan’s earthquake/tsunami and subsequent nuclear disaster has impacted. Found beach objects, were placed with Zen-like reverence, in the bas-relief of the ethereal, stark white gesso and sand, frozen in time by resin.
