I’m interested in making sculpture that elicits tactile curiosity. Is it hard or soft? What happens if I reach out and touch the surface?

There is a give and take between the gentle structure I create and the nature of the material. Each piece evolves from loosely controlled manipulations such as the weight of gravity pressing against the resistance of hand built structures or a torn edge of paper. 

Susan Dwyer received her BFA from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She currently lives in Chicago and works out of her West Loop studio.
