I create art to express ideas and emotions that cannot be expressed by other means. Due to a long love affair with dance, my artwork is often inspired and informed by movement, use of space, lighting and sound. I’m currently working in a series that focuses on vintage theaters and dancers. I’m often interested in everyday objects that tend to go unappreciated beyond their practical purpose, like zippers and lightbulbs. I’ve worked in a variety of media over the years ranging from painting and installation to performance. For the last year I’ve been working with encaustic and am thrilled by the seemingly endless possibilities this medium offers. I find encaustic media to be the ideal conduit for me at this point, as diverse memories and influences are manifested in my new work.
Susan Skrzycki is a largely self-taught Raleigh-based artist working in a variety of media including murals, installation, assemblage, encaustic and painting. Her extensive dance background is sometimes noticeable in terms of movement, dancers as subjects, and kinetic installation. Although each medium, material and subject seem to dictate the style and approach, her work is alive with, light, texture, atmosphere and presence. Susan’s goal is to continue to push the boundaries of her abilities and knowledge while collaborating with others. Skrzycki finds daily inspiration in studying the work and life of Johann Baptist Hofner, her 2x great grand uncle, having recently traveled to Germany to investigate. Susan is currently enjoying the process of earning a Certificate of Nonprofit Management at Duke.

In partnership with Rex Heart and Vascular, VAE is producing one of our annual exhibits; SCOPE. The purpose of SCOPE: the southern landscape is to exhibit the widest range of “landscape” works possible in and alongside Rex’s Heart and Vascular’s extensive collection of local and regional artists. The South is a hub of creativity and Raleigh has adopted a vision to become the Southern Capital for Arts and Culture. To do our part, VAE and REX will exhibit landscape works by artists across the regional south, or works created in or inspired by the southern landscape.
