Barbara Grossman directed me to these paintings by co-exhibitor Susan Lichtman at Gross McCleaf Gallery (heretofore referred to as G Mc C) in their current Rooms and Voices expo.

If Hammershoi and Vuillard were to collaborate on paintings I think they would look approximately like these. The spatial constructions are really interesting, being both 2-D and 3-D. I am a total sucker for that duality. I also like how they are their own world and context. All of these closely matched tones seem epic in this work.

I hope to make it up to the show to see them in person.

maybe also a bit of uglow--I saw her work in a small show at Dartmouth College a few years ago and was very struck by it
