Susan Eyre is interested in the unseen activity of matter in the universe and also intangible things which cannot be explained in terms of materiality, such as the aura of place and the dream of paradise. She is led by a curiosity about how we encounter the physical and the spiritual world and the structures that we put in place to facilitate an escape from reality. She explores similarities in our search to understand the origin of our universe through religious belief, mythology and physics. Dissecting both idealised and prosaic landscapes she is looking for clues within the everyday that hold the secrets to the structure of the universe and the pursuit of bliss.
Susan achieved a BA in Textiles at Goldsmiths College in 2007 and MA Printmaking at RCA in 2015. She has a studio at Thames-Side Studios and produces her prints at Thames-Side Print Studio.
