Susie Ketchum
You take your chances, you roll the dice, you live, you love, and some day your number is up! Suzie Ketchum creates highly detailed, hand painted ceramics densely illustrated with iconic and abstract designs. Images of skeletons, dice, hearts strung on barbed wire, floral and abstract designs form a dense continuous mesh of imagery that covers each piece. Like Mexican Folk Art, her images are playful and brightly colored, with underlying themes that reference core issues of life and death. Her palette relies on high contrast black and white elements, with carefully place vibrant highlights in primary and secondary colors. The overall effect is joyfully sensuous and humorously macabre. Suzie buys unfired vessels from local sources, and concentrates on painting and firing in an electric kiln. Most pieces are one of a kind and her editions are small, with each piece is in some way unique. Her glazes are boldly graphic and delightfully glossy, adding to the overall playful feeling of the work. Over the last ten Years Suzie has exhibited her work in California, Arizona, Japan and now Santa Fe, NM at POP Gallery.
