 Sue Hertz Show title: “Scenes from Here and There”

At my art space you will find an array of oil paintings depicting local scenes as well as scenes from my travels. You will also find a series of photographs of Cayuga Lake at its best. Water is featured in many of my works, as I’m fascinated by its ever-changing interplay of colors, textures, and movements. My art space is also where, in my other life, I carry on my speech synthesis endeavors. I am intrigued by the similarities in how humans perceive the visual and auditory world around them. In both of my endeavors, I strive to create the appropriate cues (contrasts, intensities, etc.) to effectively render my intent, be it in the form of a painting or synthetic utterance.

Work also featured in Ithacamade and Toko Imports
