Susan Boss and Mark Brown make fun, one-of-a-kind artworks in their Easthampton, Massachusetts studio.
On the first floor Susan creates silk-screen and pieced textile work that marry pop sensibilities to traditional quilt making. She incorporates non-traditional language like texting, proverbs and poetry with lush color and imaginative borders.
On the top floor they design and Mark makes mixed media clocks that are sold all over the United States. Most of the components are found at tag sales and flea markets. In the endless stream of metal containers and jar lids lie a wonderful array of colors, textures and forms. In addition to the clocks Mark creates larger robots from found and repurposed materials. All of the pieces are unique and engaging characters with their own identity and style.
Mark and Susan bring their creative energy to this mix of found, recycled and discarded objects. It is the artists’ thinking that acknowledges the value of the materials and transforms them into something more beautiful.
