Susan Silton — By power of suggestion which in favorable circumstances becomes instruction

Susan Silton’s multidisciplinary practice, which includes photography, video, installation, offset lithography, and other mediums, investigates some of the ways in which perception is shaped and distorted—by spin, consumerism, the weight of history, identity, and information overload. Her work activates an interstitial state between presence and absence, clarity and disorientation, abstraction and representation, and politics and popular culture. Silton’s work has been exhibited at LACMA, SFMOMA, SITE Santa Fe, Feigen Contemporary/NY, Susanne Vielmetter Los Angeles Projects, and Australian Centre for Contemporary Art.
