Spindle Whorl, The Work of Susan Point

A selection of some of the beautiful work by Susan Point in her exhibition, Spindle Whorl, at the Vancouver Art Gallery. Her design sense is incredible, as is her mastery of many materials and process. The show is a retrospective including many screen prints, and sculptures carved and cast in wood and glass. She is a master at whatever she applies herself to.

I love her repeated use of circles throughout the decades in all of her work. Lately I’ve been feeling like I should try not to make circular pieces, but observing how much she has used this shape throughout her career, made it okay for me again. (I can’t explain why I decided it wasn’t okay…)

I’ve mostly included a selection of her carved sculptures here, with the exception of the above print, because they photographed better. All of the work is incredible.
