Susan's work is an investigation of a tactile territory.
MARKING THE VANISHING.2020
This new body of work engages in a constant tension between creation and destruction, between body and landscape, between order and chaos – altering and creating the notion of a shifting horizon.
'I do this by distressing — no, wounding — paper. The repetitive, obsessive act of penetrating the paper stresses its fragility, its resistance is as permeable as human skin. As a literal membrane between darkness and light, paper acts as a metaphorical membrane between tumult and insight. Each mutilation, each wounding, allows light to breach those boundaries set by the obscurity, gloom, and turmoil of the inner. Each ray of light breaks free and clear to the ephemeral realms of infinitude and potentiality.'
