Metaphysical Musing: A Statement

MFA Printmaking/painting University of Washington
Extensive work with the late Glen Alps/Collagraph

Much of my artwork is based on an interest in metaphysics, archaeology, and the physical sciences: representing spatial concepts, underlying structures, healing, transformation, and cycles of existence. This work consists of paintings and prints symbolic of cycles of life in portals, hills, valleys, circles, spirals, and pyramids—oracles and sources of energy that charge living beings with the life force. Having traveled several times to Britain, Scotland and Norway, exploring and documenting megalithic sites and museum collections, I have come to believe there are changeless ideas contained like blueprints in our DNA—plans and laws for the growth and development of life’s forms and structures.

Over the years, my paintings and prints have been exhibited at the Seattle Art Museum, Portland Art Museum, Tacoma Art Museum, Seattle Pacific University, Cheney Cowles Museum in Spokane, Henry Art Gallery, Oregon School of Arts and Crafts, Washington State University, California State University at Hayward, and numerous galleries in Texas, Florida, Oregon, North Carolina, Washington DC, and Chicago. I have also exhibited in Korea, Italy, Holland, Scotland and South America. More information about my work is in the book and website, Women Artists of the American West by Susan Ressler.
