Artist statement of Susan Marie Link
My work as an artist is diverse in materials and format. I work both two and three dimensionally. I often create from a combination of traditional fine art materials, found objects, folk art materials and recyclables.
I often work in an intuitive manner and draw materials from every avenue of life. Sometimes a project requires more involved planning and preparation. Other times the materials themselves may seem to “speak” to me and I use them directly.
Reoccurring themes in my work include issues related to gender and environmental concerns. I often refer to archetypal images from early history.
