Artist Statement

I have spent most of my life trying to hide in the shadows. I am black and large, so that has been hard to accomplish. I’ve been trying to fulfill this objective so long that I lost my sense of self, but making art has allowed me to rediscover my identity. Through this exhibit, you are looking at me stepping out of the darkness and into the spotlight, revealing my heart & soul through the art I’ve created, and allowing others to see the world through my eyes. The artworks presented here are based on my photographs, which have been digitally altered to represent the beauty and wonder that I see when I look at ordinary things in everyday life. My hope in showing these works is to get people to look at the world in a new way, and to see art in all things. The subject of my images are things we all walk by daily and overlook, but if you take the time to look deeper you can appreciate the beauty and richness of what’s all around.

Sue Danielson: Attitudes of Perspective

Sue Danielson: Attitudes of Perspective

Nov. 1-Dec. 11, 2020

Attitudes of Perspective is a playful installation comprised of every day and constructed objects, videos, large drawings, and 3-D elements. It embraces the rapidly shifting perspectives we encounter daily, and the sometime resulting absurdities. Of course, the global pandemic has further complicated our lives. Although initially scheduled in the Edmonds College art gallery, the exhibition morphed into a site-specific installation in the dormant sculpture classroom after the gallery was locked down and most classes went online.
