Bells of Chidambaram SculptureSusan Pullman Brooks
Susan Pullman Brooks sees art everywhere, especially in the natural world, in processes of life and death, and in the lost and forgotten remnants of culture. A perfect day is spent scavenging the beach, searching for bones, antlers, metal, and glass in the farm fields and rocky ravines at home in western New York, and rethinking them in her studio to create sculpture. In that process from discovery to realization there is a deep and rich connection to worlds of Hindu and Norse mythologies, informed by both a personal spiritual narrative and the historical worlds that have provided her inspiration. What is laid bare by the earth and sea is an unconcealed passion made vivid in her work.
