and Judy Gardner

ABC11 Gardner_jacob_ladder2

There are but a few works in this show installed on the wall. Margaret Suchland exhibits her books held open and flat with string, in deep wooden frames. Although presented as fixed wall pieces, the promise they hold is quite different from static collages as these works are books that, although presented in a form that doesn’t allow further viewer interaction, are books nonetheless.

Margaret Suchland is an award-winning painter and book artist. She began her studies at the University of Beirut, Lebanon and after many years of living abroad she completed her B.F.A. from the University of Wisconsin in 1992. She has exhibited both nationally and internationally and her work is included in over 
20 public collections. She lives and works in Tucson, Arizona.

The two pieces in this show are each unique and sell for $600 & $800

Completely different in its level of interactivity is the biggest Jacob’s Ladder I’ve ever seen, Feedback Loop by Judy Gardner. When open the book is a full six feet in height, made of thick wooden panels that make quite a racket when flipped. In addition to the sound it makes when flipped, the panel movement is much slower than smaller versions so one can watch each panel’s rotation before the next panel begins its flip.

Printmaker/Painter/Book Artist Judy Gardner earned a BFA in Graphic Design from Northern Arizona University and an MH in Fine Art and Theater at the University of Colorado at Denver. She has taught 
Drawing, 3D animation and Digital Image Manipulation at the Art Institute of Colorado and Metropolitan State College and currently teaches electronic imaging at Regis University.

This is a unique work, priced at $800. Detail photos of individual panels available on request.
