Suzanne Ross    Art Statement/Bio


The intent of my handmade fiber and mixed media works is to reflect my emotional reaction to the power of control which is insinuated in a burka (or shadri as it is called in Afganistan)


Inside, looking out: I identify personally and psychologically with an emotional reaction to the veil's stressful isolation and confinement from the rest of the world.


Outside, looking in: I am effected by the religious treatment imposed  on unwilling women around the world, that reinforces their inferior social status.



My process is a water vacuum treatment that condenses pulp to a manageable stage so it can be created into an abstract, or suggestively realistic form and left  to dry and harden revealing underlying textures. 


The composition of the work can contain abaca, or hemp fiber, dyes, and pastel adorned with the addition of found objects or other cast out embellishments. My process has evolved over the last 20 years.



A native of New York State, Suzanne Ross attended the Empire State College and University of Buffalo and holds a Bachelors Degree in the Visual Arts. 


While living in New York City for six years she studied at Pratt Graphic Arts Center, The New School, The School of Visual Arts and the Art Students League. 


In the 80's, she founded peopleart/bflo, a Gallery Arts Center in Buffalo, N. Y.  and served as Director-Curator for five years. 


In Los Angeles in the 90’s Ross created paper sculpture in her studio in The Women's Arts Building and exhibited in the city.        


In 2000, Ms. Ross moved to Wonder Valley, California, where she presently 

maintains her studio.
