Suffolk University Art Gallery presents a solo exhibition of Resa Blatman's recent paintings.  Blatman navigates the territroy between representation and experience by superimposing realism and dynamic, graphic fantasy.  The exuberance of the overall pattern is given a surreal believability through the detailed rendering of the fur, feathers, and skin of a host of creatures. 

Resa has built upon the intricate cutout framework of her heroically scaled Beauty and the Beasties and incorporated it throughout the composition in works like Flux or Lemon Spray.  Using the wwall as a background and the cut areas as monochrome silhouettes of intricate scrolls, branches and wildlife activates the compositions - even from across the gallery.
