SUZAN SHUTAN

Throughout my practice I have been interested in developing artwork that explores relationships and the interactions between; object and materials, chance and control, two and three dimensions, architecture and public space, historic and contemporary, ecological and environmental, public and private. Rooted in process and non-objective art, my work is inspired by transformative processes that comment on our modern world and fuses image with meaning.
