My Most Recent Art Residency
BWP/AiRX: Susan R. Kirshenbaum, April 2019
(Black & White Projects)
Hosted twice a year, BWP’s Live Residency offers the opportunity for artists to create new work within the gallery during open hours. The residency’s goal is to create a space for artists to complete works that go beyond their past scale or scope, and to provide the public with a venue to interact with the artist, ask questions, and see the process of making. Each residency concludes in a solo exhibition that includes work created during their time in the space.
“Barbie on the Cusp” is a multi-disciplinary project created during my Art Residency with Black & White Projects. See more here: portfolio page.

…I think I have become obsessed with doors, windows, hardware, floors, and painted surfaces. I’m crazy about them and over the last year I’ve been adding them as layers to my drawings to create collages. I like the way they add a back story with depth, mystery, and complexity to my figures.

“Women in Silk: Not What You Think” & “Life Squared” (It’s a Manifesto)
Art Talk at SFWA (Feb 23, 2019)
What drives me to create this work? When I was younger, I thought the world was progressive, moving forward, never backward. Now I’m both astonished and delighted that at long last there is another wave of increased awareness about the ongoing exclusion and mistreatment of women. As a young person growing up in the 60s through the 80s I watched and participated in a wave of progress in human rights.
