Susan Benarcik is an installation artist and surface designer based in New York City. Deeply rooted in horticulture and design, her concern for the environment is made evident in her 3-dimensional sculptural installations, and surface designs. Her compositions provoke the viewer to observe and reflect on human experiences including individual, social, and environmental.
Part printmaker and part sculptor, Benarcik takes elemental forms of the natural and man made world into her studio and carefully transforms them by stacking, stringing, layering, knotting, and weaving them into dimensional sculpture for public and private spaces.
In the hands of this artist, simple materials become contemplative compositions for interior and exterior application that are highly tactile and evocative. They evidence a fondness and respect for the natural world, delight and bring equilibrium to our senses by allowing the natural world become part of our daily cognitive experience.
