PROVIDENCE-Something extraordinary is coming from artist Suzanne Volmer and she would like you to go on her journey with her. Volmer is a renowned artist having exhibited her works in art galleries, museums and private collections in the United States and Europe, but her latest art installation “Clouds” is almost too grandiose and fantastical to describe.
Volmer has had a diverse career with artistic credentials of great merit including countless awards and having taught at the Rhose Island School of Design. It is Volmer’s passion about her art however that ignites audience participation and her desire to create interactive pieces.
Her last outdoor project installation, “Aquatic” was exhibited at the GASP Gallery of Brookline in 2007 which had cymbals that looked like lily pads and lit up ponds of her own making, almost as though one were in a dreamlike zen garden. The installation was a physically ambitious yet serene piece in which visitors could walk around and visit time and time again. She gears up again with “Clouds” and as the project progresses, up until show time on May 22, she would like her prospective audience to see “Clouds” evolve and will share updates on our blog as well as on her own website. www.suzannevolmer.com.
“The environmental presence of “Clouds” will include large format helium filled floating fabric forms in mechanized kinetic movement coordinated with light and sound,” says Volmer of her piece that will be exhibited at the Providence Art Club Solo Show from May 22 through June 10, 2011.
