    Suzanne Hadorn

    Whale, what have we here?

    It's a rarity for a photo gallery — a collection of dreamlike watercolor drawings by Suzannah Hadorn in the exhibit "White Whale Dreaming."


    Although this gallery usually shows artwork created with cameras, this time around they're presenting pieces accomplished with watercolor crayons by the artist Suzannah Hadorn in a show entitled "White Whale Dreaming." These are vivid, dreamlike drawings, at times both childlike and skillful. On the canvases are ghostlike apparitions; you wonder if they are human shapes or creatures of the imagination.

    Paintings by: Suzanne Hadorn.
    4th Street Photo Gallery 67 East Fourth St. (212) 673-1021 Through March 29

    Given the title of the show, "White Whale Dreaming," one would think the works on these canvases are what said whale sees while sleeping. If that's so, he's dreaming of goddesses and otherworldly forms. These works are fairyscapes in bright purples, greens, pinks and a myriad of other shades. On the front wall of the gallery are about two dozen small drawings on rectangular canvases and in the rear, on a stretch of glittery gold fabric, are five larger works.

    Hadorn's figures bring to mind those of Arshille Gorky in their biological formativeness, yet her fanciful sense of composition gives the works a more lighthearted sensibility. The gallery has a homey, accessible feel as it is located off the beaten art track.
