Suzanne Kammin, Animal Farm.
Kammin’s art emphasizes the relationship of shape, color and surface treatment. “Her palette and shapes are strong, but it is more about planes and lines, and how they interconnect,” Renard said.
Kammin, an assistant professor in the Department of Visual Art and Design at Caldwell University, said the imagery in her work springs from an explorative process. “When I start working, I have no idea where a painting is headed, and I go down countless dead ends before I get to something that works for me,” she said. “The images usually present themselves as figures because of my love of figure/ground relationships. This both grows out of my background as an observational painter, and also from my desire to create an image that has its own identity and autonomy.”

The exhibition runs until April 29.
