Domestic Policies

Sue Schneider's avatar Sue Schneider

These pieces are selected from a body of work titled, "Domestic Policies": Defined as the set of laws established within one's home or country. The Dish, the universal symbol of domestic life, representing new unions and meals shared, can also symbolize unbridled joy, good fortune, or a compounding of troubles when broken. This body of work is an exploration of personal and global "domestic policy" with an unlikely partnership of materials. Wire -- a material most often used for mending and repair -- becomes 3 dimensional drawn line. An artist's world traditionally depicted with pencil or paint on paper or canvas, instead drawn with wire and constructed smooth shards of ceramics, beach rocks, and other random objects, that become color, surface, and texture, in an exploration of line, color, weight, and light.
