Willow Tree Shelter for The Holy Family and Animals - This thin structure captures the essence of nature using complex intertwined patterns that mimic twigs and branches, with repetitive swirls imitating a starry night sky.
"The repetitive swirling concentric mark-making is suggestive of twinkling stars at night. The roof is an intertwined, organic structure that suggests a bower of twigs or branches. Since the surface patterning is complex with tiny elements, I wanted to pare down the form to the simplest possible. It's basically a single sheet of pierced metal, curved to allow it to stand and represent a shelter for The Holy Family and animals." - Susan Lordi

Susan Lordi's art reflects our relationships with people and the world around us. Her keen observation of the human form is further inspired by ballet, modern dance, nature, and her personal experiences with family and friends. These influences are revealed in her Willow Tree sculptures, from which emotion is communicated through gestures only.
Besides her work in sculpture, Susan has always loved making art with cloth. She has a Master of Fine Arts in Textile Design, and her fiber art has been exhibited internationally. A monograph of her art textiles has been published in the Portfolio Collection by Telos Art Publishing and she is featured in the book Art Textiles of the World: USA. Susan maintains a studio in Kansas City, Missouri.
