Opening Reception and Artist Talk: Friday, March 7, 7-9pm
Exploring the visual and conceptual correspondences between the human body and universal forms, Susan D’Amato creates large-scale charcoal drawings. D’Amato depicts specific intimate features of the body as metaphor to contemplate our human identity, vulnerability and mortality. The body is transformed into landscapes that transcend its earthly connection to take on a cosmic perspective.
Susan D’Amato is an Associate Professor at Syracuse University, Syracuse, NY. D’Amato received her MFA from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, NC and her BFA from the University of Connecticut, Storrs, CT.
