Susan Smith Trees

@ ARC Gallery

2156 N Damen Ave, Chicago, IL 60647

Opening Friday, May 25th, from 6PM - 9PM

On view through Saturday, June 16th

Susan Smith Trees work concerns the confrontation with the forces of the psyche and the attempt to give physical expression to the cracked, open spaces within.

Materials drive this process. The act of manipulating the material, she explores its capabilities and limitations and discovers its possibilities. It is through this relationship that direction and form emerge. Letting the material lead allows the unleashing of an inner world in a kind of physical exorcism suggesting the experience of the body as a gateway to transformation.

“There is only one journey, going within.” R.M. Rilke
