Susan Watt Grade creates sculptural installations and mixed media, assemblage artworks, many with an environmental theme. She is interested in how our society’s products and architectural structures mimic nature, and likes to work with salvaged materials and multiples of objects. She is also interested in arts and environmental education as wall as incorporating community outreach into her installations.
“Through products and built structures, people seem to be re-creating their own natural world. I am interested in revealing our “human-made landscapes” through art-making. My hope is that viewers consider the meaning of our discarded objects, relate their findings to their own stories, and recognize their systems of value. “
