b. 1974, Pennsylvania, United States
North American artist, Suzanna Scott, simultaneously seduces and repulses the viewer through her excessive use of sutured stitching, skin-like surfaces, witty references to various body parts, and shades of the color pink. She gravitates towards sculpting in multiples using everyday materials and discarded objects.
By embracing repetition as a tool throughout her work, Scott emphasizes the ever/never evolving social struggles we face at the intersection of existence within our body and society. She uses her work to step into and examine the sticky landscape surrounding gender, sexuality, equality, and bodily autonomy.
Scott’s work has been exhibited across the United States and internationally in Chile, Malta, Spain, Russia, Germany, France and Mexico. She lives in Ruston, Louisiana where she rage-stitches daily in her garage studio.
