Installation / Land / Site-specific
A former classical musician, Susie MacMurray retrained as an artist, graduating with an MA in Fine Art in 2001. She has an international exhibition profile, showing regularly in the USA and Europe. Her work is also held in public and private collections in the UK and North America.
An engagement with materials and with the body is at the heart of MacMurray’s practice. Her role is one of an alchemist: combining material, form and context in deceptively simple ways to stimulate both physical and cultural associations within those who encounter her work.
Working in installation and sculpture she has gained a reputation for poetic site-specific interventions in historic spaces. Her work typically references the history of a space and merges the particularities of that history, the specifics of the site, and the meanings that become embedded in materials.
