Susan Unterberg

Work from Doubletakes.

“..In Double Takes, Unterberg begins to abstract her idea of portraiture. As the only small and intimate series, these works depict various precious objects and spaces. The reduced scale draws the viewer in, promising secrets through the mundane. In depicting things rather than people, Unterberg clearly takes a step away from conventional portraiture, abstracting the idea of what defines a person.

While Double Takes uses allusion as its primary vehicle, the remainder of the exhibitions roots itself deeply in metaphor. Unterberg uses aesthetic to convey these ideas. With Insects, Horse Eyes, and White Horses, Unterberg uses the subjects as a metaphor for self. Each possesses qualities that she identifies with as an individual and artist…” – Jacque Liu
