American artist Suzette Marie Martin positions the figure at the center of her work, using expressive body language, symbolic background elements, and a minimal palette of charcoal and paint to evoke contemporary narratives of myth, science and ecological grief.
Martin's work combines theatrical gestures of distress, nature goddess mythology, molecular notation and text, colonial history and current events, to explore the emotional trauma of ecological collapse, including 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.
