Fall 2010 AiP
Meet Suzanne Schmaltz, our fall 2010 Artist-in-Park!
There has not been a time in Suzanne's life that she has not been surrounded by art and involved in one form or another, including formal training in ceramics, wood and metal-work. Self taught in basket weaving and all manner of beading, her current body of work is a result of that life-long participation in various mediums.
Surrounded by the breath taking beauty of northern Arizona and southern Utah, the Lake Powell area re-energizes Suzanne on a daily basis. The expanse and remoteness of her physical surroundings interject themselves into her work.
Suzanne brings a unique vision to both her basket sculptures and beaded skulls. Inspired by a lifetime in the western United States, it is easy to see the influence of the America's Indians, and the abundance of nature…all brought together in her own voice and style.
Having studied in a wide variety of mediums throughout her life, Suzanne's current body of work beautifully combines numerous techniques to create truly extraordinary sculptures.
Suzanne's love of nature and its complex simplicity come to fruition in the finishing details of her work. Each element stands on its own but when viewed as a whole, her homage becomes evident.
