Excited to be included in the New Artists Feature, a juried selection of artwork from Culturehall by David Andrew Frey
Suzanne Torres' sculptural work Gray Frame exists for the space and time it defines. Hundreds of individual forms are brought together to traverse a long span between two timber pillars of what was once an old lumber factory. Rhomboidal geometry joins floor to wall to ceiling as one. Unlike the surroundings Gray Frame engages, by nature of its construction in fragile unfired ceramic sheets, the work is imminently transitory in nature. Literally built of air-dried clay, the architecturally scaled form ultimately is recycled to create something new. The conversation between the object and its home negotiates each entity's existence by comparing a lifetime composed of days with that of years.

I'm very happy to be included in a new project launched by Midwest Artist Studios a project by Frank Juarez.
Here is an explanation of the project from the Midwest Artist Studios blog -
The Midwest Artist Studios ™ is a three summer project established by a Wisconsin high school art educator, Frank Juarez. A team consisting of a photographer, writer, social media expert and assistants will travel the Midwest visiting contemporary visual artists who embrace the importance of Art Education, believe that their art experience was influenced or shaped by their K-12 Art Education and are following their artistic dream of art making. These visits will encompass a close and personal approach into the studio life of an artist. Artists will not talk about their engagement in their art processes, but also discuss their rigorous work schedule, daily commitments, work ethic, artistic vision; to name a few. After each summer the MAS Team will be creating a catalog and an educational workbook, which will contain lesson plans that compliment and reinforce the artists’ contemporary art practices. These lesson plans can be used to reinforce, supplement, or become an art curriculum for grades 6-12. A blog will house the MAS Team’s journey, behind the scenes footage, reflections, and photographs.
Currently, this project is being supported by the Kohler Foundation, Inc and the Wisconsin Art Education Association.
