Susan Eyre graduated from Goldsmiths College in 2007 with a BA in Textiles. Since then has exhibited in London, Berkshire and Hampsire. Exhibitions include The london Group, Ochre Group memebers at SW1 Gallery, Artsway Open 08, Freerange at the Old Truman Building.
Susan Eyre's practice explores commonly held ideals reflected in archetypal romantic scenes and ideas of paradise set against an urban reality. Her interest is in revealing everyday experiences transformed by aspirations for the sublime.
Working with textiles, print and mixed media she collages imagery alluding to contemporary situations and cultural references to create ambiguous landscapes, mixing fantasy with the mundane. Artifice and a dislocation from the natural world are key themes in her work. She is inspired by the power of illusion to offer an emotional escape from the disparity between desire and actuality.
