Susan Elliott’s work is made out of tourist mementoes and souvenirs. Scouring the second- hand shops of seaside resorts and car boot fairs for her materials, the kitchen crockery, novelty mugs, and figurines that she finds are combined with more traditional mosaic tesserae to create quirkily beautiful and iconic pieces. Taking inspiration from popular culture, to create multi-faceted images, Susan comments ‘There is a lot going on in my work!…Show more My studio is like an archive of the nation’s mantelpieces and an affectionate collection of the kitsch and the idiosyncratic within which I think there is an inherent beauty. I try to create work that I enjoy and that speaks to other people in a way that enriches their experience for having come across it.’
Susan Elliott lives and works in Hastings, East Sussex. Her work is shown regularly with Art Galleries in the UK and through Art Fairs at home and abroad.Show less
