SUSAN DENNISTON

My work contemplates the ambiguity of a world in which things are not always quantifiable and clear, acknowledging our fragility, vulnerability, and certain impermanence. She lives near the ocean and a concrete seawall. At the seawall I watch the ocean break up and scatter our ideals of bigness and lastingness. I watch the barriers we build erode and be built again.
