Susan Smith Trees

Exhibition dates:  May 23 – June 16   Opening Reception Friday, May 25, 6 -9PM

Susan Smith Trees work concerns the confrontation with the forces of the psyche and the attempt to give physical expression to the cracked, open spaces within.

Materials drive this process. The act of manipulating the material, she explores its capabilities and limitations and discovers its possibilities. It is through this relationship that direction and form emerge. Letting the material lead allows the unleashing of an inner world in a kind of physical exorcism suggesting the experience of the body as a gateway to transformation.

“There is only one journey, going within.” R.M. Rilke
