Susan Kinley discusses the ways in which her work responds to particular places, with a focus on pieces related to Bronze Age archaeology in Orkney, and a recent project on the South Dorset Ridgway. She will also include works linked to sites in Cornwall, and talk about the ways in which sources and ideas drive the need to develop different processes and material combinations.
Susan Kinley has completed many projects and commissions, often in the public realm, and has exhibited widely, with solo exhibitions in England, Ireland and Japan. Her practice crosses fine art, craft and design, with subject matter often evolving from archaeological sites at the coastal boundaries of Britain. Her piece, Keepsake (Skara Brae), can be viewed as part of the Elemental exhibition.
