Susan Stockwell’s work takes many forms from small studies to large scale sculptural installations, drawings and collage. The materials used are everyday, domestic and industrial disposable products. These materials are manipulated and transformed into works of art that are extraordinary.
I am intrigued by Susan’s use of so many different everyday products to create these stunning life style dresses as in my own work I am working towards a life size sculpture.
I found Susan Stockwell’s work when looking through the book: The first cut by Manchester art gallery (pages 99/100/101).
Fiona Corridan (2012). the first cut paper at the cutting edge. Manchester: Manchester art gallery. 99-101. I used the above book to look at work by the artist Susan Stockwell. I looked at her work on the Highland dress 2010 and the Colonial dress 2008.
