For most of her life Susan Mayr has been an urban dweller longing for mountains, forests, and trees. She has traveled regularly to Nova Scotia for months at a time to fill herself with its atmosphere and light. In this show, memory meets the moment as her work reveals itself in a place remembered.

Since her husband’s death in 2015, Mayr has lived in Woodstock where the natural world is close at hand. Her work has been presented in both solo and group shows since 1983. Nature Ruthlessly Recalled is Mayr’s first major exhibition in the Catskills in more than twenty years.

Her work captures the beauty and intensity of the natural world, without being specifically representational. With influences of expressionism and abstraction, Susan’s work is distinctly her own, bringing viewers into a deep conversation with the physical and mental landscapes that surround us.

Nature Ruthless Recalled is a collection of large scale and smaller works offering us the opportunity to reflect on the changing of seasons and the turning of years through the ethereal beauty captured on canvas and paper by Susan Mayr.
