Sivarulrasa Gallery, 34 Mill St, Almonte, Ontario
Vernissage/Meet the Artist: Sat March 18, 3 pm-6 pm
From March 10 to April 16, 2017 Sivarulrasa Gallery presents Metaphor, an exquisite collection of 20 drawings and sculpture by Almonte-based artist Sue Adams, including several new works being exhibited for the first time. Working primarily with the human form, Sue Adams’ work explores themes of passion, pain, frailty and grace. Her figures exhibit strength, vulnerability and primal energy, giving voice to humanity’s inherent contradictions. Her art draws inspiration from historical movements in Classicism and Humanism, with her figures often combining outward formality with inner turmoil. Provocative and sublime, Metaphor is a meditation on the human experience in all its beauty, anguish and vigour.

Over the past 30 years, her work been exhibited in many group and solo exhibitions in Canada, including in Ottawa, Toronto, and Montreal, and in the United States and France. Her sculpture Leda was installed at the Welcome Centre at the University of Windsor in 2015. Born in Windsor, Ontario she continues to work from her studio near Almonte, Ontario.
