For five weeks, Sue Chenoweth lived and breathed creative culture in Rio de Janeiro. In 2012 the artist was chosen to participate in the abroad arts residency, sponsored by the Phoenix Institute of Contemporary Arts, and reveals her work created in Brazil this November at Modified Arts, 407 East Roosevelt Street.
Chenoweth is a painter who describes her work as a spiritual process: “I have to fall into an abyss of unknowing to get to a new place of understanding.” She’s shown in galleries and museums throughout Phoenix and across the United States, but her upcoming exhibition, titled “Sue Chenoweth: Real and Applied,” is the painter’s first international solo show.
The work she created in Rio was on view at Largo das Artes Gallery from August through September of 2012. It will travel to Phoenix for a Third Friday opening on November 16 from 6 to 9 p.m. and a panel discussion on Saturday, December 1.
