In an entirely different palette, Susan Vecsey’s “White Main Beach,” East Hampton, 2012, is a scene familiar to anyone who braves the ocean beach on an overcast winter’s day. Bathed in whites, with violet tints in the sky and greenish tints in the sand, Vecsey creates a composition that both goes in toward a vanishing point and comes back at you, through the movement in the clouds. The whole inward/outward motion then takes a vertical and horizontal direction from the crosshatching of the linen, on which White Beach, East Hampton is painted.
