THE DR. ROBERT BRANDT, JR. GALLERY
The Contemporary Dayton is proud to present Becky Suss: Home, an exhibition of paintings which meditate on how the memory of place, specifically home, functions as the foundation of identity. Home is guest curated by Philadelphia-based art historian, Greer Pagano.
Exploring ideas of the intimacy of home life, her large-scale works use flattened architecture, exaggerated proportions, and distorted perspective as holistic depictions of the felt and remembered qualities of space, while her small paintings of objects and books become a library of charged personal items. Her work amplifies the tension between the factual and the fictitious, mirroring the plasticity of memory. Suss’ paintings are also a prolonged inquiry into domesticity and the lives of women.
Inspired by her personal family heritage and traditions, her work recognizes generations of women who have made homes, built memories and shaped the consciousness of their families. In addition to a solo exhibition at ICA Philadelphia, Suss’ recently exhibited at the ICA Boston and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, CA. Her work is in the collection of The Philadelphia Museum of Art, among others.
