Susan C. Dessel

Susan c. Dessel’s work challenges viewers to consider the impact of their actions/inaction in shaping our society. The first Artist Fellow, U. MI-Frankel Inst.(2013/14), bridging past to present Dessel created research-based drawings, BRICK IN A SOFT HAT (Portraiture of Martha Gruening) Series 2 Nos. 1-8, now in the Univ. of Edinburgh on-line DANGEROUS WOMEN PROJECT. Dessel’s installation PIECES OF PEACE will be among work by US-based artists inspired by the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in FAR FROM THE FRONT LINES, Evanston IL, Sept. 2017.
