Suzie Smith

Mediums: Mixed Media

I am primarily a print-based artist. I am interested in printmaking because of the structure and restrictions it provides, giving me an opportunity to play against existing systems and rebel against formal aesthetics, materials and techniques. I am intrigued by the labor intensive nature of printmaking and how it falls on the line between fine art techniques and everyday materials (printed paper ephemera). My work plays with this dichotomy.

My work is about oppositional ideas such as originality and uniformity, rules and rule breaking, mass production and craft and in general the process of creative thinking.
