Paintings Inspired by the Drama of the California Coast


Argazzi Art now has work on display from Suzanne Onodera, a painter who was born and raised on the West Coast but now lives in Ithaca, N.Y.

“I met Suzanne though another artist, who shows with her in California,” said Argazzi Art owner Judith Singelis. “I had been looking at her work for a long time. She paints wonderfully, the strong brushwork and dynamic palette.”

Onodera says of her work that, “These large-scale oil paintings depict a mood of unrest in the turbulent skies, mountain fires and deep azure pools, illustrating humankind’s connection to place and nature” and addressing “themes of decay, loneliness, stewardship and regeneration; yet always present in the work is the beautiful, the mysterious and the ambiguous.” 

Singelis has six pieces by Onodera in the gallery on Main Street in Lakeville, Conn. They will be in the gallery until mid July, Singelis said.    

Because of ongoing COVID-19 caution, there will not be an opening party, but make an appointment to come in.
