American artist Suzette Marie Martin positions the human figure at the center of her work, using expressive body language, symbolic background elements, and a minimal palette of charcoal and paint to evoke narratives of emotional conflict.
Current work combines gestures of distress, nature goddess mythology, chemical notation, scientific data and text to explore the trauma of ecological collapse, including the grief of the CoVid-19 pandemic.
Her work, rooted in drawing and developed in series, is informed by observational studies and inquiry into environmental issues, with references to academic art traditions and 20th Century Expressionist mark making.
