ghost birds in winter
is a site and season specific work that captures the beautiful and naturally organized chaos of birds in flight through jagged, snow-covered peaks. The white of the vinyl on the surface provides a stark contrast to the surrounding grayness of winter. In a nod to the shiny promise of spring, a gold disc hangs on the interior wall of the gallery space. The irreality of this vision is cut away to reveal the depth of the gallery space and the everyday reflections of the street in the windows.
Susan Rowe Harrison makes ink drawings and site-specific installations of hand-cut vinyl for domestic, commercial, and alternative settings. She received an MA in Art Education from New York University, a BA in the History of Art from the University of California at Berkeley and studied Painting and Drawing at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She has exhibited her work internationally.
