  • About the Artist

Suzan Batu is an established contemporary artist, who was born in 1954. She has lived and worked in NY for most of her professional life. Now she lives and works in Istanbul, Turkey.

ARTIST STATEMENT: She has a BA in English-German translation from the University of Graz, Graz Austria and she also speaks Russian. She was graduated from BA California College of the Arts, Oakland, California & MFA Brooklyn College, Brooklyn, NY.

Artist Statement: The unrelenting proliferation of glass and concrete, to name some aspects of modern life, as part of the continuing war against nature in our surroundings and also the continuing rule of the patriarchy has led me to approach my work in a very organic manner and become very women centered. I am inspired by beading, knitting, embroidery, fabrics, most things considered to be “women’s work” or women’s interest”. I make acrylic on canvas paintings which are organically composed and made in a very meditative way. They actually have a feel of embroidery, beading or knitting as I mentioned above. I also do “marbling” on paper which I then “embroider” with acrylic paint and hang around the space with laundry pins like laundry. Or I hang them in a circle to create a small temple for the Goddess. “Marbling” in Turkey where I currently live and work is considered a traditional technique usually done by women which is why I have adopted the process, except that I do it in a very unconventional manner and I feel the result is original. Thirdly, I create, with the help of a very talented seamstress, Goddess outfits using inexpensive but iconic fabrics which are traditional and very widely used by regular people here in Turkey. Finally, I create costumes for performances with Goddess centered themes which I choreograph and stage at the openings and closings of my shows.
