Artist of the moments…..Suzanne Caporael

Suzanne Caporael is an American artist born in New York City in the year 1949. Caporael enjoys working with natural elements including water, trees, and even ice. Her work is a blend of realism and abstraction as she enjoys making the tree and the leaves in an abstract manner. For the trees she may work with the regular tree shape, or just work with the tree rings that you find when slicing a tree open. A similar idea exists with her paintings of water where she enjoys portraying the many abstract shapes that are found in flowing water. These are executed in the medium of woodcut.
