Susan Grace: Metamorphosis 

Susan Grace has worked with the figure for many years but is not interested in portraying a particular person or in depicting a straightforward narrative. The figures, which are usually female, are frequently wrapped, preserved, and protected in some fashion, whether it is with flesh, such as hands or layers of fat, or a covering of cloth, or marks on the skin. Evoking a sense of solitude, the figures are absorbed in their own isolation and rarely face the viewer. Susan imagines them as having some kind of eventful life that takes place beyond the boundary of the canvas, and hopes the viewer is drawn in to this world and willing to contemplate its possibilities.
