Suzi also works in 3D with fibres such as seaweed and weaving sculptural vessels of fine acrylic and plastic twine used in fishing.
A multidisciplinary artist, Suzi Joel's work explores the process of attachment. Drawn to the small and fragile, her work has always united conventionally incongruous elements and discordant materials such as wood and woven fibre or paper and cotton thread. Through this she invites ideas about interdependence, habitat, contextualisation and the nature of pattern or repetition.
Her painted wooden fragments are perfectly formed studies that crackle with energy, they exist somewhere between abstract paintings, sign writing and patterned motifs.
Suzi has represented photographers for many years in London, before working with adults with learning disabilities, teaching stitched and woven textile work and deconstructed techniques for both 2D and 3D artwork.
She has exhibited in London and Norfolk.
