02 Drawing nature with Suzanne Archer

The study of objects in detail gives great insight into subjects that are often taken for granted and provides the opportunity to explore more experimental and personal image-making. Starting with the construction of a simple artist’s book, you will record carefully researched, small studies of exotic flowers and other treasures from the natural environment to develop imaginative mixed-media drawings with students encouraged to scale-up the studies to works larger than life size. 
Suzanne Archer has been exhibiting nationally and has been the winner of many art awards. Her work is included in many public and private collections throughout Australia and she is represented by Nicholas Thompson Gallery in Melbourne.

Suzanne Archer

Artist, tutor - NSW

"I am interested in creating works that intuitively explore the intangible relationship of life, aging and inevitably death and consequently the works are often regarded as being on the dark side. I would consider that my work is conceptually based although I engage thoroughly with my chosen mediums creating solid art-objects in order to express my ideas."
