Susan Szenes is a mixed media artist that I have been watching for many years. I was hoping to seeing her work again at the 2011 Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition, but sadly she wasn't there, possibly due to the drastically scaled-down show. I hope she'll be back in 2012. Trained as a graphic designer, she creates contemporary mixed media montages that incorporate found objects and evoke gritty urban environments with planes, cars, travel trailers, highway interchanges, power lines, billboards, and street maps. It works for me and I'm looking forward to seeing more.
