Suzanne Song USA, b. 1974


Suzanne Song creates the visual experience of multifaceted dimensions which embody the dualities of reality and illusion. Song’s picture planes hover between dimensions becoming open surfaces that set the stage for boundless perceptual play. The perceptual relationships among opposing visual elements find harmony in her work. The paintings composed of flat forms or patterns, reminiscent of grey walled school rooms or institutional offices, create optically charged configurations through the correlation and juxtaposition of geometric elements. The shaped canvas is a way for Song to single out a specific part of a painting and give it a corporeal presence. By pulling these forms out of the picture plane, the once illusionistic spaces take on sculptural forms, pronounced and perceived in new ways.


Suzanne Song's works are included in the collections of RISD Museum, Rhode Island School of Design, Providence and private collections. She is the recipient of Smack Mellon Fellowship and New York Foundation of the Arts Fellowship. Song is a member of the Elizabeth Foundation of the Arts Studio Program.
