Press Release

Suzanne (SÜ) Fortin’s inspiration comes mostly from her experiences around the world, particularly in Africa which she considers her “second home.” In creating her three dimensional art on canvas she explains that she feels like an instrument through which pictures and words are played out on the canvas; as if, like an orchestra, each color, paper, wire, and recycled object becomes part of a symphony invoking associations with elements of earth and the human form. Swirling tendrils of gold, copper, yellow, parchment and old articles create a dynamic sculptural relief of topography. Many of her materials are recycled items found scattered in her environment, and most of her subjects translate her interest in the people she has met around the world and her preoccupation with worldwide social problems such as poverty and sickness, slavery or lack of water. In addition to these deeply emotional expressions, SÜ reveals her lighter side through humorous works depicting animals and humans.

SÜ lives in Montreal, Quebec, Canada but travels often to nourish her creativity and inspiration. She takes courses abroad to expand her technical knowledge of mixed media and the three dimensional art for which she has become best known.
