Artist Statement

From the smooth glossy surface of her large painted wooden cubes to the rough contours of her plaster body casts, Susan McClintock makes work that explores her self identity and it's interactions with society. Her work uses self portraiture to find points of connection with the outside world. Her queer identity, shaped by Catholicism, and experiences growing up in the Bay Area all inform her work.

She was born and raised in the California Bay Area and has lived and worked in Olympia, Washington for the past 15 years. She recently relocated her studio and home to Tacoma Washington where she lives with her teenage daughter.
