Susan Stamm Evans
New Mexico native, Susan Stamm Evans creates powerful bronze sculptures that express small gestures and quiet emotions. The great physical presence of her fragmented figures demands a response far beyond the simplicity of the object. The face becomes an abstract form, compelling yet familiar. Always working with the human figure, the artist’s latest series of bronze works express ur connection to the universal human experience through the “common threads” that weave her abstracted face nd metaphorically intertwine us all. By focusing on different fragments of the human figure such as the legs or hands, Susan Stamm Evans "suggests a person that is here but one that cannot be completely known." The artist has enjoyed over sixteen solo exhibitions and thirty-eight group and invitational exhibitions throughout the U.S.
