Suzanne Davey

 

Suzanne Davey is an interdisciplinary artist working principally in sculpture and installation. She uses mixed media and diverse techniques to produce work that ranges from small meticulously crafted ceramic assemblages to large scale site responsive outdoor installations that harness air movement and light. Fragility, vulnerability, struggle and their counterparts transformation, resilience, sanctuary are key thematic concerns. By creating poetic spatial ensembles from textiles, natural and everyday materials and exhibiting them in gallery, public and natural environments she aims to identify and highlight contemporary experiences, places and things that connect, divide and drive us as individuals and collectives.
