Artist Interview: Suzanne Kammin

Suzanne Kammin, a Newark, New Jersey based artist, takes us into her process and thoughts on being a painter who likes to play with the reversal of figure ground only to flip it back again. Suzanne talks about the processes she uses to "eliminate the anxiety of destroying a work." She also speaks of her highly experimental past and what enjoying both representational and abstract painting can do to one's process. Listen below for more.
