Los Angeles artist Suzanne Pratt is a California native. The horizontal geography of open, settled spaces is the structure of her psyche. Her journey as an artist has been the long path of reducing form to its essential structures and harnessing the power of the resulting singularity. An artist's development takes a lifetime but she had two experiences that got her to where she is now. The first was an interaction with artist Roland Reiss where he observed that the interesting part of her work, then a more conventional abstract painting of circular forms, was when there were fewer things going on. In a lifetime of studio visits, this one comment broke the ice. Years later it was James Turrell who put it all together when he observed that shadows themselves could be the darkest line and that she might never need pick up a paintbrush again. Her evolution toward sculptural wallworks that harnessed the light and space around themselves to complete their objecthood was on its way.
