VIEW IN MY ROOM
As the COVID pandemic broke out, I got a new etching press. I set to sewing and printing on old topographical maps of Vermont. I was inspired to have a press and set about exploring how Akua inks responded differently to different fabrics and paper. I sewed extensively on these maps: fabric and paper - both from and back. Because of the pandemic, I found myself thinking of home and place. I noticed how many of the geographical features had very intimate names; Grandpa Knob, Loveland Hill, Mount Support, etc.

Susan Smereka was born and raised outside of Toronto, Ontario, Canada and now has lived in Vermont, USA for over thirty years. Smereka graduated from Concordia University, Montreal with a BFA in 1994. Whether working at the etching press with ink and collage, writing and bookmaking, or video installation, Susan is interested in the concepts of disorganization and order around experiences of inner experiences and those of family relationships. How these, seemingly opposing energies reconciled, or not, continues to spurn her artistic process for 40-plus years. Smereka co-founded 'new new art studio' in 2020 with her partner Kevin Donegan. 'new new art studio', Burlington, Vermont, is a space for teaching, exhibitions, and the creation of fine art.
