The Latest from Susan Constanse

These are some pretty rad new WIP's by Susan Constanse. Checkout some more of her abstract works on her site and keep up-to-date with her on oranje blog! From her artist statement:
I want to make work that induces warmth and sensuality, subtle and seductive. I use a human scale for my work. Intimate works that appeal to the eye and the hand, tactile on a number of levels. I have a long-standing interest in textiles and fibers; it was the first medium that I used and the aesthetics and mechanics of textiles are a foundation for my work.

Palette, which is a subtle and complex vocabulary, is integral to my work. I am influenced by traditional Asian textiles. There is a quality of light that is trapped in the fibers of silk and there is a degree of complexity that I find appealing. Again, this is a way of creating a subtext within individual works and within a series.
