Cape Codd artist Susan Carr delivers three new mixed-media constructions for Surface Spectrum curated by Mark Murphy. Susan Carr’s sculptures are a wonderful mix of brightly colored expression and unconventional construction. Susan shares, “I like how independent my sculptures are. They seem free to express color, form, and line.”

The truth is my sculptures evolved organically by having odd pieces of cut wood in my studio, painting them, then stacking, and suddenly having that “ah-ha” moment of – sculpture is something I want to do, it makes me happy, I must follow where this is leading, and then slowly the work emerged.

Susan Carr describes her work, “In my sculpture I am dancing along, having fun. I think what ties them together is my mark making and my thick paint. ” You can learn more about Susan Carr on Hyperallergic. Visit Susan on Instagram.
