Multi-Canvas Art

"Polytychs" by Artist Suzy Andron

— January 7, 2008 — Art & Design
Continuing its revolving art displays, Salon Moxie, a hair salon in Raleigh, North Carolina, is hosting two new large works by Raleigh artist Suzy Andron.

Andron connects multiple canvases of highly textured abstract acrylic compositions to create what she calls polytychs. She defines her work as “adjacent groups of two or more stand-alone but related canvas paintings” which allows her to play with the paintings' perimeters to produce new geometric forms.

“In 2000, I started painting triptychs,” she explained. “Soon I expanded to more than three combined pieces, and they became polytychs. The canvases wanted to rotate, so I applied geometry to the mix. My polytychs continued to evolve, now into new dimensions. I turned a few canvases backward while still connecting them with the others. I experimented with triangular canvases. I introduced different textures, and worked with how they interact. Right now, I'm developing pieces that are composed of several layers of canvases and new base materials.”

A painter for “as long as I can remember,” she said, Andron earned a bachelor's degree in Fine Art and Art Education at The Pratt Institute in New York in 1968 and a masters degree in landscape architecture at North Carolina State University in 1980. She has taught interior design at UNC-Greensboro and currently teaches color and design fundamentals at the Meredith College Art Department. Her work has been shown at the Park-Art Gallery in New York City, among other venues. In 2004 she was included in the juried exhibit “Best Artists in the Triangle” at the Lee Hansley Gallery in Raleigh.

The two large polytychs – “Living Water” and “M” -- will remain in Salon Moxie through February. For more information on Suzy Andron and her work, visit http://www.andron.com.

Salon Moxie is located at 6191-122 Falls of Neuse Road, Raleigh. For more information, including business hours, visit http://www.salon-moxie.com or call 919-850-0721.
