Artist | York, UK
Installations and works on paper inspired by architecture
Sue Mann makes work in response to architecture. She is interested in how spaces feel and seeks out hidden, forgotten or reimagined aspects through drawing. Sue is concerned with making connections, questioning what the sensory experiences of drawing and architecture may reveal about a place or time. Working with repetitive mark making, she produces drawings on layers of translucent paper to place in response to light as a means to consider the multifaceted nature of architectural spaces.
Inspired by architectural features such as light and shadow, recent works comprise drawings on translucent paper that are activated by light in the space.
Sue invites opportunities to make work in response to architectural spaces. By sharing her process or work, she can offer new ways of noticing, understanding or experiencing a place. Sue works with drawing to examine and communicate her responses but also to share drawing’s universal capacity to make connections. For previous projects, see CV below.
Sue also welcomes commissions to make work in response to architecture; for example, your home, office space, workplace, museum or heritage space.
