William Turner Gallery Features New Works by Carole Bayer Sager:

William Turner Gallery at Bergamot Station Art Center held an opening reception on Nov. 4 for its latest exhibition “New Works: Paintings by Carole Bayer Sager.”

The exhibition, which is on show through Dec. 1, features Bayer Sager’s evocative new series of paintings, which focus on abstracted subjects.

Rich in color and sensual surface textures, the paintings range from micro to macro views of peanuts, popcorn and cracker-jacks, amongst others. These intimate and expansive perspectives create an intentional ambiguity, allowing viewers to more freely tap into their own associations.

“I have been surrounded by pop culture my entire life,” Bayer Sager said. “I live it and add to it when writing songs. In my recent paintings, I am fascinated by studying small and often overlooked every day subjects, and enlarging them beyond their natural states, transforming them into something entirely new.”

Bayer Sager’s artistic progression began five years ago with mastering portraits and the human form.

Painter Eric Fischl said when he first saw the portraits her friend was making and then found out how short a time she had been painting, he was very impressed.

“Having taught painting, I know how rare it is for someone just beginning to be able to control the luminosity of flesh,” Fischl said. “Carole is one of those rare exceptions: a natural talent.”

William Turner said the deep creative vein that Bayer Sager has mined so successfully in music, turns out to have an incredibly strong branch of expression in visual art.

“Carole’s gift for words has found a new source of expression in the sensuality of paint,” Turner said.

William Turner Gallery is located at 2525 Michigan Avenue at Bergamot Station Arts Center. Gallery hours are Tuesday-Sunday from 11a.m. to 5p.m.
