Susan Eley Fine Art is pleased to present two solo exhibitions featuring works on paper by Angela A'Court and Karin Bruckner. Keeping Memories will be on view at the Lower East Side Gallery.

A’Court’s still lives hum with energy as bold colors and pronounced textures reveal lyrical studies of botanicals and interiors. Invested in varying hues—the artist imagines each scene with large swaths of color that create a clarity of composition emphasizing tone, form, and texture.

Bruckner produces a series of unique abstract prints exploring ideas of memory and femininity through a process she relates to archeology. Using plates that hold the record of previous pulls and ghost impressions, the artist layers abstract, vessel-like forms with organic shapes akin to flora, water, and other elements of the natural world.

Angela A’Court was born in London in 1961. She attended the West Surrey College of Art and Design, UK, Parsons School of Art and Design, New York, and Goldsmiths' College London where she earned her BA in Fine Art Textiles. A'Court worked as an interior designer for an architectural practice. She now paints full-time and lives in New York.

Karin Bruckner was born in Zurich Switzerland and studied architecture at the Technical University in Munich, Germany, and ETH in Zurich, Switzerland. In 1986 she received her Masters Degree in Architecture from TU Munich and a Masters Degree in Science from Columbia University in 1990. Bruckner came to Printmaking through Architecture after working in the offices of Richard Meier & Partners and Philip Johnson Architects.

Due to a structure not unlike Architecture's layers in space, Printmaking offered a unique way of reconnecting Bruckner to her lifelong passion for creating Art. Her work has been exhibited in galleries around the country, including FibreArtsGallery (Palo Alto, CA), House of Yes (New York, NY), Good Question Gallery (New York, NY), The Brooklyn Collective (New York, NY) and Exhale Gallery (Carson, CA). The artist currently lives and works in New York, NY.
