SUSAN HAGEN: ARTIST'S STATEMENT
My process as a sculptor, as I have established it for myself, is a unique hybrid of traditions of wood carving and mixed media construction, and informed by the methodologies of science, portraiture and historical dioramas.
My inspiration comes from contemporary life, and the beauty of the birds, animals and people around me. As a long-time resident of the City of Philadelphia, I feel deeply connected to the place I live, and the rich textures of urban life are a big focus of my work. A parallel body of work explores environmental issues and the place of birds, livestock, and other animals in the contemporary world.
