The artist Susan Stockwell engaged the library audience with a revealing insight into her art practice at our Clothes Cloth and Culture Group event last week. Susan’s work is concerned with ecology, geo-politics, mapping, trade and history. She talked with Dr Christine Shaw-Checinska about the notion of ‘the creative spirit’; how ‘Eureka’ moments of inspiration are sparked by the process of making. In a practice informed by research into the materials she chooses, such as rubber and tea, Susan’s work makes connections to their historical, economic and social meanings.
