Artist Statement

“Adrift in rivers that divide and bind lands, I chart a home anew. I inscribe their white waters, dark depths, dry beds in a dense grisaille, inferring conversion from dark to light, from vulnerability to strength. Discovering resolve in wild flows that hold no regard for boundaries. Embrace the cloth they weave across lands, its expanses encasing a new thing. Do you not perceive it? Their unfettered flow cleanses, revives. I leave the river and my feet touch solid ground. I am no longer adrift.”

About the artist

Susan Roux’s career highlights include the Joondalup and John Stringer Prizes. Her work critiques and responds to cultural change. It takes historical events as points of departure, conveying burdens with economical means. The vulnerability of humans yield marks and visual language. Touch seduces the body as tactile territory, while mark and stitch mark its boundaries. The acts of stitching, marking and unmarking arrests time to recall a contemplative search that stretches beyond the immediate.
