An introduction can be a wonderful thing. You can meet interesting people, and make new friends. You can be introduced to your new favorite foods, books, music, or artist.
I’d like to introduce you to some of my favorite artists. Some of whom I’ve been familiar with for years, and others I’ve only recently been introduced to.
The person I’d like to introduce is the artist Suzanne Laura Kammin.
Suzanne was born in New York City and grew up in Manhattan and Toronto, Canada. She received her BFA in painting from the Rhode Island School of Design and her MFA in painting from the San Francisco Art Institute and studied painting abroad at the National College of Art and Design in Dublin, Ireland while an undergraduate and at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver at the graduate level. She is a two time recipient of a grant from the Adolph and Esther Gottlieb Foundation and has had her paintings and drawings exhibited in galleries and art institutions both nationally and in Canada.
Suzanne has served for thirteen years as an assistant professor of painting and drawing at Parsons School of Design. She began her teaching career as a studio instructor at the Anne Tanenbaum Gallery School of the Art
Gallery of Ontario where she taught painting and drawing, worked to develop an intensive studio program for teenagers and helped to redesign the entire
curriculum for the gallery school. In addition to her work at Parsons, Suzanne
is currently a lecturer in art at Caldwell College, teaches painting at the
Yard School of Art at the Montclair Art Museum and has also been a visiting artist at Pratt Institute and Roger Williams University. Suzanne has served as a guest curator at the Painting Center where she also serves as a member of the gallery.
Suzanne runs her own art school, Left Bank Studio School, out of her beautiful loft in the Ironbound section of Newark, NJ where she also lives and paints with her husband, painter Andrew Baron.
“In my paintings, using the vernacular of 1970’s era design and electronica, I explore ideas of home, belonging and connectedness. Using a variety of processes, I juxtapose hard edges with more gestural passages, creating works that are both sleek and forgiving. A mixture of the humane and technological, these abstract paintings can be read as blueprints of a longed-for utopian future.” SLK
