Artist Interview - Suzie Idiens

Brent Hallard  interviews Suzie Idiens for his blogVisual Discrepancies.  Right off the bat he's getting to the heart of the matter with Idiens works

In painting you really do need to question why you go around the edge and paint the sides. Painting is about the face, the surface, and yes, the edge, which is not the end of the world, but is at the crossroads of a painting. The edge in painting engages the frame as something that contains the image or, as a physical limit, prohibits/suggests infinity. But when the painting is sculpture, and clearly is sculpture, all of a sudden the edges don’t matter anymore. Or they do matter more, but not to reassure the painting’s side, instead they work the sculptural. (BT)
