Part Two: Poetic Imagery
Suzanne Moore is a lettering artist, painter, and printmaker whose eclectic interests meld in the diversity of her artists’ books. Her books blend abstract and representational imagery, rich color and surface treatments with textual content and contemporary lettering to create work that obscures the line between word and image, legibility and abstraction. Suzanne’s work Wild Nights, pictured above, is currently on display at ABM as part of the Guild of Book Workers’ triannual exhibition.
During part two of the A Journey into “Wild/LIFE” lecture series, attendees will virtually step inside Suzanne’s studio and enjoy an interactive learning experience as she discusses her artistic methods and collaborations with fellow book artists and bookbinders, providing a live demonstration based on techniques used in her most recent works.
Suzanne’s work is exhibited widely, and her books have been acquired for private and public collections in the U.S. and Europe. Among them are the Pierpont Morgan Library, The Library of Congress and the rare book collections of Smith College, Wellesley College, Harvard University, Yale, Princeton, Bowdoin College, and the University of Washington. She speaks and teaches in the US and abroad on contemporary manuscript book design, conceptual ideas in book design, and on the painting and collage techniques.
