Sue Saxon

Throughout my twenty year painting and installation practice - in an eight month field trip across Australia and during residencies in Budapest, New York and Paris - I have charted the emotional and physical geographies of memory, drawing on popular culture, philosophical texts and the elemental, symbolic and sensuous qualities of materials such as paprika, salt, flour, tears and eggshells.

A particular examination of the Jew as “Other” has developed into a broader engagement with discourses of power and different perspectives of otherness. My stake in materiality, a critical engagement with my own history and a desire to rupture the status quo combine to infuse my work with multiple layers of metaphor and meaning.

Sue Saxon's residency project is “The Bondi Twitch - a field guide to the noses of the Waverley District”.
