Kozol’s "If A Tree Falls" at New York’s 350 Bleeker Art Gallery

Melanie Kozol’s If A Tree Falls will be on view at New York’s 350 Bleeker Art Gallery December 4 - January 6, 2014.

With dynamic brushwork and a vivid palette, Melanie focuses on color, light and the landscape in her lush paintings.  

“My work is a celebration of color, light and line inspired by the natural world,” she says. “I am stimulated by the great outdoors where I embrace the sights, sounds and smells of the landscape. My paintings go beyond the literal. I am intrigued by the aura of light and building a sense of place. Weaving color and line with form and pattern, I develop an environment much like a musician layers sound to build a mood. I navigate between reality and memory, intention and chance. Capturing a play of light or a suggestion of form, my paintings evoke a sense of the familiar, a place remembered or just imagined." 

Opening reception: Thursday, December 4, 6-8:00PM.
