Known for her large minimalist translucent sculptures; Susan’s work embodies a beautiful combination of concision of form and ethereality in the union of two completely opposite mediums: hard metal and translucent fabric. The seemingly delicate abstract forms grow beyond their physical boundaries as they collaboratively form spatial relationships with their surroundings: soft fabric elements glow with available light while hard angular metal elements cast dramatic shadows across adjacent surfaces of floor and walls. Upon closer investigation, these sculptures engage the viewer to experience the forms’ variable relationship with positive and negative space.
This exhibit is also debuting the long awaited new product line of Sculptural Bracelets. Angular Extremes are an extension of Susan’s sculptural work and are created from a unique partnership between Art and Industry. One hundred percent American Made, Susan began with a desire to give work back to American Manufacturing Industry. After 3 years of searching for American based companies with American workers who were willing to partner with her, this new line of sculptural jewelry has been born. In keeping with Susan’s meticulous attention to detail, each bracelet comes with a uniquely shaped box made of recycled materials and label production as well.
Inspired by AXOM’s high walls and museum quality lighting, Susan created a sculpture specifically to be installed in the gallery space. This piece, entitled 4-2-2 is a prime example of Susan’s architecturally scaled work . At 9′ x 8.5′ x 10′ this piece transforms the physical space of the gallery with its presence. Also included in this exhibit are sculptures that Susan refers to as her ’residential’ series; which retain the spirit of her large pieces but are smaller in scale. These smaller scale works are are what Susan refers to as ‘complete thoughts that stay true to her conceptual nature’.
