Artist Statement     Using a multidisciplinary approach, Sue’s visual art practice primarily examines place and space.

My current work has been produced as part of the research project I am working on for my MFA at the VCA, and is part of an ongoing investigation into the concept of liminal space (transformation and the in-between) through the lens of personal mythologies and Instruction Based art. Each piece directly references the movie Xanadu (1980).
