Abstract

Breathing Space is about a journey of developing artistic inquiry that moved from a macro-level sociopolitical focus to an intimate reflection on the impetus for art making. That focus circled back to an enriched perspective on community and socio-ecological themes. This thesis describes the artistic and literary influences on Suzanne's path to final exhibition and avenues of expression that have opened to a new beginning, including prospects for new genre public art collaborations. Photographs of her work are accompanied by reflections on the importance of the everyday and significance of place, and broader connections to contemporary social and environmental issues.
