Journey into the radiant world of Susan Cushing and Franklin Hill Perrell. Their passion for the positive is unparalleled, creating an art experience that is undeniably uplifting and heartwarming. With a canvas bathed in brilliant hues, their artwork evokes an eternal sense of joy and optimism. Amidst a world that sometimes clouds over, their creations shine brightly, showcasing endless sunny days and azure skies to celebrate the most precious season of the East End.
Both Cushing and Perrell, though distinct in their subjects and techniques, converge on a shared belief: Art possesses the transformative power to make the world a more radiant place. Their guiding philosophy? Embrace and amplify the beauty and goodness in life.
Drawing inspiration from the teachings of masters like Josef Albers of the Bauhaus and the dynamic push-pull concepts of Hans Hoffman, they skillfully navigate the emotional depth of colors. Recognizing the profound link between colors and moods, they delve into an expansive spectrum, crafting an array of emotions from serenity to deep contemplation.
And where could such vibrant masterpieces find a more fitting home than the Hamptons? This locale not only boasts a rich lineage of celebrated artists, from Chase and Hassam to De Kooning and Pollock, but is also blessed with the enchanting Long Island light and picturesque beaches. Here, summer isn’t just a season but an embodiment of freedom, joy, exploration, and the carefree spirit of “school’s out.”
So, as summer stretches out in all its glory, we invite you to transcend the mundane. Let Cushing and Perrell guide you through a vivid journey, an endless summer where every corner promises a splash of color and a breath of happiness. Step into their painted paradise and feel your spirits soar!
