Suzy Spence: On the Hunt
June 22 - August 24, 2019
Opening Reception: Saturday, June 22, 5pm - 7pm
Curated by Amy Rahn

On the Hunt, an exhibition of figurative paintings by Brooklyn and Montpelier based artist Suzy Spence, considers contemporary power struggles through the elegant metaphor of fox hunting. Spence's paintings turn the genteel athletic, sartorial, and social tradition of fox hunting toward lucid social commentary; she appropriates the sport's traditions and painted genre scenes to turn a traditional subject into a psychologically-rich vision of riders on the trail of a more ambiguous quarry. The figures that congregate in Spence's paintings could be characters jilted by a secret loss, or steely survivors of an unknown war. In groups, they turn their faces toward each other in dark complicity-soldiers, sisters, friends. They are on the hunt. --Amy Rahn
