Susannah Zucker is a figurative ceramicist living in the Western North Carolina mountains. Her interest in making figurative art is rooted in a long history of body centered research including an active massage therapy business, anatomy and physiology coursework, 25 years of dance training, teaching and performing, and extensive Buddhist sitting practice. Her sculptures reflect this research by giving expression to many aspects of human somatic experience: trauma, resilience, physical virtuosity and athleticism, fragility, eroticism and spiritual inquiry.
Susannah received her BFA from the California College of Arts and Crafts in 1994. She lived in the San Francisco Bay Area for 15 years and was profoundly influenced by the eclectic and incisive arts culture there. She received her MFA from the University of Georgia in 2006.
Susannah Zucker's sculptures have been featured in solo and group exhibitions in museums and galleries in California, Georgia, Colorado, Tennessee and North Carolina. She has been awarded Best in Show at the California Clay Competition, as well as a residency position at Anderson Ranch Art Center in Snowmass Village, Colorado.
During the month of June 2012, Susannah will be presenting Life Support, a solo exhibition at the Asheville Area Arts Council Gallery.Opening reception: Friday, June 1st, 6pm-9pm.
