Suzie Chaney is an artist living and working in the hills close to Carcassonne in Southern France. Her work has an introspective, poetic and dreamlike quality. It reflects the liminal space or margins between what we see and what we feel. She frequently uses elements of water and animals to convey our quiet and personal connections to places, experiences and all living beings. Although she formally trained with a BA (Hons) in sculpture, in 2017 after a cancer diagnosis her work shifted. Her preferred working method since then is on paper, using mainly manual printing methods and mixed media. She creates drawings, unique or editioned printmaking and books, and with an emphasis on experimentation and process. Her work continues to evolve through regular exhibitions, commissions, online sales and holding workshops and retreats.
A walk that gives cadence to memories; stepping towards the intangible; with the breath in the trembling margins of things; the past reborn in the overflow of fragrances; the contour of the invisible things; the forms of the immaterial; to deepen yourself in the intangible
— Emil Cioran, The Book of Delusions 1935
