Sue Katz: What's the Big Idea?

I met Sue Katz at the 3rd Annual Montserrat Encaustic Painting Conference in June, when I attended her presentation "What's the Big Idea?", which discussed content in art--her own, and that of a number of other artists. Sue is presenting "What's the Big Idea?" in an open forum that is part of her show with Jozan Treston at Gallery A3 in Amherst, Massachusetts. One of Sue's pieces from the show is below with a short statement. Check out the gallery link for more info.

SPIRALING OUT, 36"x66", encaustic on wood and metal, 2009, Sue Katz
Basically every found object in this piece is old and worn except for the panel with cream white and copper-colored encaustic - proportions aren't exactly two squares in a rectangle now - one member of my family's generations has died and another is declining - so out and into new directions - and so it goes - life keeps happening!

Hi Pam, It was a nice surprise to see my pal Sue Katz's work on your blog. I plan to attend the forum at her gallery in a couple of weeks when she will present "What's the Big Idea?". I missed it at the conference, so I'm looking forward to it.

I haven't commented on your blog lately, but congrats on all the very good looking shows you've been in - probably because of your good looking work!
