Suzanne Smith

Artist, Teacher

Suzanne Smith is an interdisciplinary fine artist based in Manchester, UK often working with collage, found objects and text.

Watchful, insistent and awkwardly intimate, Smith gathers, prods and probes her way through a suspect world. Navigating a fog of social norms it's the junctures that appeal - the tessellation and the slippage. The tiny shifts in gesture, context, location, language, that tip one thing into another - appropriate to inappropriate, contrary to political, irritation to arousal. As careful as it is playful, Smith's practice teeters between mismanaged exorcism and determined accumulation of proof.
