  • Biography
"Suzie Eggins works across drawing, printmaking and sculpture. She uses her imagination as a microscope to examine the cells and structures of our natural environment to create beautiful geometric drawings and installations. Eggins enjoys studying the tiny, temporary and trodden species and spaces that play a vital part of our environment; sensitively highlighting their fragility and destruction by humans."

Claire Craig, Curator, The Travelling Gallery

-----

For me, geometry and abstraction are my preferred ways to express the inner world of nature... its knowledge and its mystery. Culturally, we tend to objectify and exploit our natural resources, forgetting the larger being of Nature that we are an intimate part of.
