Tilt-A-World – Susan Else – Peninsula Museum of Art

Visit the Peninsula Museum of Art‘s East Gallery from October 20, 2013 to January 26, 2014 to see Tilt-A-World, Sculpture by Susan Else.  There is also going to be a reception for the artist on October 20, 2013 from 1 to 4 pm.

It’s some amazing work where Artist Susan Else creates structures, then covers them completely with painted and printed fabric using collage and quilting technology. Some – like the “Ferris Wheel” and “Carousel,” are even motorized.

She explains, “I treat cloth not as a flat surface but as a wild flexible skin for three-dimensional objects. I like to make work that combines contradictory ideas and images; life is always a complicated stew of positive, negative, and shades of grey – all at once – and I want my works to reflect that complexity and ambiguity.”
