The Big and Small World of TK Slusser

The Fortress by TK Slusser

"Caught between the water and the clouds"

TK Slusser's paintings are a wonder to behold - dreamy, ethereal, even otherworldly, until you notice the tiny house or castle in the background. Her paintings have their own special, super-wide angle vision of the world, yet they focus on its small aspects.

The Farlight by TK Slusser

At times, TK's paintings are like visions of Irish-laced landscapes blending their cumulous fog into craggy California shorelines, quite breathlessly actually. If you haven't noticed, that's a lighthouse in the distance!

Across the Causeway by TK Slusser

When I look at the Slusser's paintings, especially my favorite, Across the Causeway, I can almost hear the lonely wail of a shepherd's crude bagpipe melding in with a brooding Rachmaninoff symphony as it echoes across the rough waters. It makes me want to get out of the cold wind, find a pub and down a few pints.

In her paintings, TK Slusser's sky and sea and earth dance together, the blend showing us the truth - that human edifices are just small players in that big world called outside. I can't wait to see what she does with that small world called inside.
