Susan D'Amato

Work by Susan D'Amato, associate professor of studio arts in the School of Art, will be on view through Saturday, June 17, in the group show "Stack" at Kathryn Markel Fine Arts, 529 West 20th, Suite 6W, New York City. "Stack" is curated by artist Deborah Zlotsky in conjunction with her exhibition of new paintings, "BTW."

The artists in the show combine and order things, and thereby acknowledge that no one element can tell the whole truth. The visibility of the parts within the whole identifies the importance of these smaller, multiple truths, offering us a glimpse of what was lost and gained in the process of assembling and condensing. The sum of the parts is both the sum and the parts, and the poignancy of that equation is beautifully realized in their works.

D’Amato is interested the visual and conceptual relationships between the body and universal forms. She is the recipient of numerous national and international awards and has exhibited her work extensively in prominent venues throughout the United States and abroad.
