Stryk's Artwork in Orion Magazine12.13.2005
An eight-page portfolio of paintings by Bristol artist Suzanne Stryk is featured in the November/December 2005 issue of Orion magazine.
A brief essay by the artist called "Collecting the Wild" is included with nine paintings of her observations of the natural world. The editors describe Stryk's feature in the following way: "On the path from an artist's experience in the world to a finished work, lives are transformed into fragments of symbolic beauty."
Stryk was also featured in the October 2005 edition of A! Magazine for the Arts, published monthly by Arts Alliance Mountain Empire. The story and photos may be viewed online: CLICK HERE
The artist is currently having a mid-career survey titled "Second Nature: The Art of Suzanne Stryk" at the William King Regional Arts Center in Abingdon, Virginia, through March 5, 2006. For more information, CLICK HERE
