SUSAN GREER EMMERSON
I see my work as an exploration of the picture plane; delving into that surface between wall and the environment and expanding that surface between the panel and the viewer. My drawings and paintings rise off the wall into three dimensions, forming shadows and caverns which in turn incorporate themselves into the the work itself. My work recalls cells and microorganisms, body cavities and organs, and bits and pieces of the natural environment. The marks, strokes, and added materials reflect complex rhythms, incongruities, and the relationships of evolving imaginary organic forms.
