Susie Olczak’s work and research is influenced by minimalism, geometry, light, balance and architecture. It explores how the viewer experiences space, form and light. Her installation work alters, highlights or creates space for the viewer to interact with. Inspired by the materials she uses to make her sculptures and installations, Susie produces abstract photographs which become optical illusions or make space ambiguous and encourage the viewer to rethink the way they perceive. Olczak uses scale that is recognisable to the viewer, evoking architecture but to a smaller scale, so that the space becomes more intimate. Material processes are important in her work and she believes that technical skill and quality is important alongside concept in a body of work. Susie explores materials such as perspex, steel, concrete and stone and combines them to change their perceived properties. Susie Olczak’s work has been shown around the Uk, in Japan and Finland, in galleries and the public realm. She has shown at the BBC in Scotland, Cambridge Institute of Astronomy and for Charles Saatchi at the Big Chill Festival. Read Less
