About

Becky Suss presented selections from her most recent body of work in her first solo museum exhibition at the ICA in fall 2015. Meditative,large-scale paintings augmented by smaller studies in oil and ceramic reimagine the domestic spaces of her relatives with a focus on her late grandparents’ mid-century suburban home. The flattened architecture and exaggerated perspective of Suss’s canvases memorialize their collected art and objects through an intimate, archeological process that opens familial narrative to questions of class, politics, and religion. The catalogue includes an extended interview of Suss by ICA curator Kate Kraczon.
