Artist Statement for Sussan Giallombardo:

“The focus of my work has been exploring the possibilities of 3D mixed media. While experimenting with paper, plaster, and canvas I let the process guide my direction. I discovered I was most interested in simple shapes, both biomorphic and geometric. I didn’t overthink the final outcomes. I wanted the pieces to have movement, light and air.

Nature and my environment are constant sources of inspiration. The piece Ocean Waves was inspired by the rectangular boarders of National Geographic magazines and the movement of water, the color yellow represents the sun. Sometimes my work can be self-referential, Neon Shadows is the result of cutting the covers of NatGeo. I started to see rectangles everywhere. I continued using the 1/2 metric and started creating rectangles, making  piles of them, until I had enough to play around  and create something. The flight patterns of birds influenced the shape and connection of the rectangles.”
