About

Susan Greer Emmerson's "Collapse" is a 30 x 22 inch collage of black papers that create an active abstract image of a home collapsing. Bleach was used to leach black pigment from the paper leaving ghost colors of pale brown. Other paper bits are fragments of a white ink drawing of a home, now disarticulated and jumbled beyond reconciliation. This collage is floated in a black frame with total dimensions of 36 x 27 inches and is signed on the back. Susan Greer Emmerson makes art about natural disasters: meditations on the loss of home and community and our changing climate. Experimenting with materials is central to her practice as she uses Tyvek (a plastic paper) to create sculptural wall collages, drawings and paintings. Her wall sculptures depict disheveled, broken surfaces where Tyvek painfully peels away like paint or skin, exposing a raw inner core. Everyday objects become precious; their bits and pieces are incorporated into the work and become signifiers of the lost reassurance of a safe and intact home. A former surgeon, she also has a collection of work focusing on the human body and its seemingly mysterious anatomy. Her art brings the human narrative and a subtle bit of humor to some very serious subject matter. She is represented by Fountain Street Gallery in Boston, MA.
