Suzanne benton

"A fascination with the intersections of the personal and the archetypal has carried me through life’s journeys. In making art and teaching throughout the world, I’ve sought to learn and reconfigure unquestioned myths, expanding my art and understanding in the process. Whatever awareness I’ve attained now abides in my work."

Suzanne Benton is a native New Yorker who has shared her many-faceted art for over 30 years and in 30 countries. Exhibiting widely (150+ solo shows and representation in museums, and private collections worldwide), she’s a highly recognized metal mask maker and mask performance artist, printmaker, painter, lecturer, and workshop leader. A former Fulbright Scholar (India), and recipient of many grants and artist residencies.
