18 May to 29 June 2019
Susan Simpson won our Open 2018 with her enigmatic self-portraits. These photographs are a part of a wider narrative which you will now get the opportunity to view in this solo show.
Susan works in multi-media, using simple materials such as felt, cardboard, paint and glue to make sculpture and installation. A trained commercial photographer, she combines the gloss of photographic images with hand-crafted objects. These child-like methodologies allow Susan a freedom of expression previously inhibited at a young age.
She explores personal themes of gender, class and identity and how childhood experiences leave their legacy in our lives.
On 25 May at 2 to 4pm, Susan is chairing a debate here at 20-21. This will be an opportunity for local artists to come together, network and debate how much of ourselves we put in the public domain through our artwork.
