WAFTA in Conversation with Susan Roux
This is the first of WAFTA's interviews for you. We welcome Susan Roux, a South African born West Australian artist who moved to Perth 8 years ago. Since arriving she has developed a vigorous art practice that honours and re-tells women's stories, referring to colonialism, cultural identity, and the political and cultural influences of place.
In her conversation with Iris Whitelock, Susan describes how she explores the common ground across history and cultures to find a point of convergence between herself, her art and the viewer. She often uses specific historical events as her points of departure creating work that is simultaneously expansive, delicate, personal and universal.
Grab a cuppa, sit back and meet Susan Roux!
