Sensual and Ghastly Forms of the Human Body

Stacks Image 4594

So much has been said about the body. There is still more to say. Our body houses us, and it contains our inner life. Our thoughts and desires are our own until we voice them to others. It is the visible object we project on the world and it defines us by gender, race, and age.

Through Susanna's work, she explores forms in and of the body. She is fascinated by its bulbous shapes, layers of sinew and skin, undulating folds, knobby joints and the constant hum of discharged thought and bodily secretions. It is both sensual and ghastly. It brings us pleasure and pain. From birth to death we are captive to the human form we call our body. 

She binds, stitch, layer and sculpt using found objects and a variety of materials including; cloth, paper, thread, resin, and wax. Through physical process and the repetitive nature of her work, she thrives and gives voice to the body.
