Susan Sironi is recognized for carving a series of the same book to reveal multiple concepts, perceptions, and interpretations of the experience. Sironi's process is meticulous and explores repurposing all aspects of the book including cuttings and dust. She has exhibited throughout North America and Europe at galleries and museums including the Museum of Art and History in Los Angeles. Her work has recently been featured in the Los Angeles Times and Artillery Magazine among others.
Sironi’s solo exhibition Susan Sironi: Rantings & Shavings is an examination of reality mixed with what is imagined. This presentation features both individually altered books as well as multiple book series, including the Alice in Wonderland and Gulliver’s Travels series cut to mimic Sironi’s body parts and the East West series cut to reveal different concepts of Eastern and Western cultures. A cookbook and masonic code book are among the many deconstructions which have been reconfigured to provoke innovative thoughts and ideas
Susan Sironi: Rantings & Shavings is presented by Cream Gallery, an art and artifact collections management firm with an emphasis on the highest quality care, preservation, and acquisition of art assets.
