I'm delighted today to showcase the striking work of Suzanne Stryk for my first-of-the-year Artist Watch feature at Escape Into Life.

Exhibiting through January 31 in "Notes on the State of Virginia" at The Athenaeum, in Alexandria, Virginia, Suzanne draws on a deep affinity to nature to create mixed-media still lifes that are at once mysterious and the product of patient observation and masterful technique.

You'll find in today's Artist Watch column Suzanne's Artist Statement, a brief biography, and a selection of images from two of her series: Notes on the State of Virginia and Mirror. Also included are links to several galleries that represent Suzanne.

To see Suzanne's collaborations with her husband Dan Stryk, a poet, visit Red Eft Editions.
