Susan Stover

 As I build one body of work on the previous ones, there are certain elements that remain constant forming a link or thread that continues to develop, progress and evolve. Formal issues of line, surface and color intermingle with conceptual ideas of sacred space, solitude, spirituality, the passage of time and of leaving one’s mark. Each piece and series is a personal meditation on what connects the past and the present and the beauty of imperfection. The connection between art and spirituality has always been at the source of my own art making whether as a participant or as an observer. I am interested in how other cultures integrate their beliefs and their art in the objects created and the rituals performed. My intention is to create artwork that evokes this sense of transcendent mystery and purpose and to imbue my work with a vulnerability and vitality that reflect a human condition, emotion or state of mind.
