Art Review: Hamptons Art Hub | Sally King Benedict Brings Smiling Expressionism to Quogue

Partway around my second tour of the Sally King Benedict show of paintings and drawings pulsing with bright colors at Quogue Gallery, I was still searching for the right word for the arc sweeping upward in many of the works. Then I returned to the aptly titled Going Light and Bright Face.

Art Review: Hamptons Art Hub | Hans Van de Bovenkamp Embraces a New Freedom Through Paint

It can feel unsettling to discover works by an artist that differ from expectations. Especially when the art departs from a long-standing signature style so entrenched that it feels natural to inquire if the new approach might be the result of a life-changing event.

Art Review: Liz Sloan | Book of Rings | Quogue Gallery Spearheads Hamptons Rising Star at Art Basel

Review from OTI Hamptons Art + Design Issue 2017:

The genesis of Liz Sloan’s “5D” (five dimensional) anthology, pulsates with mystery and vibrancy, nurturing, interlocking and counteracting the sphere of activity with a constancy of transformation throughout its notation of interaction, like a ring without a beginning or end. Sloan’s “Tinntinnabuli” is characterized in the versatility of material choices and in the accompaniment of her intuitive cyclical arrangements, thickness in the depth of universal manifestation and lightness in her artistic existentialism.
