Sue Latta

My job as an artist is to ask questions, and often those questions include, “Is there a relationship between these things (material, image, object, text, texture) that creates new meaning?” “What is the new meaning?” 

The search for meaning starts with the belief that these various “materials” carry meaning, that when combined create relationships, which work together to tell a story, or ask a question or create an instinctive understanding that transcends language.
