Collection: 'Island of Misfit Buoys' | Susie Choi

16 May - 3 June 2023

OPENING NIGHT: Thursday 18th May, 6 - 8pm

Susie Choi is a Sydney-based contemporary artist who works across ceramics, sculpture and installation and is guided by ideas that confound and amuse her.

The sources of inspiration for her work stem mainly from childhood including toys and playgrounds, the material culture of South Korea, and elements of Australian popular culture.

Each body of work unfolds in a series of stages: mould-making, slip-casting, glazing and multiple firings. These processes provide opportunities for continual experimentation and refinement, and elements are kept modular in order to allow for ongoing building, rearranging and play.

The resulting forms and artworks in their soft palette of pastel colours evoke a sense of nostalgia and invite audiences to reconnect with their own childhood memories and experiences.

Susie Choi graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Art in Ceramics in 2021 from National Art School, Australia. She has exhibited in several group exhibitions in Sydney. Her work is held in public and private collections across Australia.
