SUZANNE LUSSIER

Clay is my primary material. To this I introduce alternative mediums such as concrete, paper, resins, paint, fabric and more. These materials complement the work and add a dynamic layer of information to the narrative, surface and form. I create intuitively, producing honest results, which showcase process, irregularities, and intentional flaws.

My art is presented for the audience as a guide in creating a relationship between the objects and the story I have bestowed. This leads the viewer to specific emotions through familiar imagery. While interacting with my art the viewer can reorient the narrative, relating it to their own story through their perceptions and personal experiences.

Suzanne Lussier taught art through Teach For America in Washington, DC, and 6th grade in Santiago, Chile, before studying at Oregon College of Art and Craft and the University of Montana in Missoula. She holds a Masters in Teaching with a focus in Art Education, and recently completed a Masters of Fine Arts in Ceramics.
