DANIELLE SUSI AND SAM WALKER:
SOIL SAND SURFACE
EXHIBITION ON VIEW: NOV 16 - DEC 20, 2019
RECEPTION: NOV 22 6 - 8 PM
Focused around the simulation of nature, Soil Sand Surface attempts to offer the joy and urgency of the natural world around us. The ground beneath us is not always solid, whether on water, soil, snow. The many surfaces we place ourselves on serve as a means to explore new places and new opportunities for preservation.
Danielle Susi is a writer and fiber artist based in Salt Lake City. Originally from Boston, she received her Master of Fine Arts from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, where she received the New Artists Society Fellowship. Her work has been shown at ICA Baltimore; in the Page Gallery and Sullivan Galleries in Chicago; and in Utah at Pandemonium Gallery, Bountiful Davis Art Center, Eccles Community Art Center, Finch Lane Gallery, and God Hates Robots. Her fiber work is deeply rooted in technique and repetition, with a focus on texture building.
"I am always trying to understand where I fit in in this world. I constantly find that I have to zoom out and look at the bigger picture in order to understand things and expand my views. My art attempts to capture the feeling of zooming out and seeing things from a new perspective. I have learned that it's ok to feel small in a big world."
