Suzanne Davey is a contemporary artist based in Sydney, Australia. She works principally in mixed media installation and sculpture. By creating spatial ensembles from textiles, ceramic, natural and everyday materials she aims to examine fragility in natural systems, social vulnerability and struggles, and inter-relationships between people and spaces they inhabit. Permformative qualities in her works respond to moments of transition and transformation within systems and spaces. Tactile material investigations and site research are integral to her work.
Suzanne has exhibited widely in gallery, public and natural spaces since focussing on her creative practice from 2012. Recent projects have considered the tensions between collective actions and inaction towards environmental ecologies. Her current body of work is a photographic investigating emotional boundaries between plants and the spaces we co-inhabit.
Her professional background includes arts administration, public programs, education, community arts and design. Throughout her career she has presented numerous arts workshops to adults and children, sharing her passion for the creative arts. She is involved with arts organisations such as the contemporary textile collective, SEED STITCH, Eramboo Artist Environment, CREATE-ART-EXCHANGE art critique group and the Tramshed Potters Club.
