Artist statement: " Margaret Suchland is an award-winning painter and book artist. She began her studies at the University of Beirut, Lebanon and after years of living abroad she completed her B.F.A. from the University of Wisconsin in 1992. She has been a collector of the found object and other of life’s artifacts for many years. The effects of time seen on these objects reveal evidence of the human presence – the worn edges, smudges and random marks are an inspiration for her in her continued interest in mark making. A sense of time, place, memory and the emotional connections within them are a recurring theme found in her work. She has exhibited both nationally and internationally and her work is included in many public collections. She lives and works in Tucson, Arizona."
Collaboration with Curt Dornberg
