As this short review of Susan’s Marquetry Exhibition demonstrates, you don’t need to keep to a standard formula, you can venture into new areas of marquetry and reap a most rewarding level of success.
So, to summarise, as you can see from Susan's example, you don’t need to feel intimidated by marquetry’s conventions, you are indeed allowed to try new styles and forms of marquetry if you wish to.
Marquetry isn’t just flat surfaces and decorated tables and furniture, it can be an art form of exquisite beauty.
Susan has proved that marquetry has the ability to take on a completely new form that the art world would recognise as true art. They certainly could not claim any copyist elements in these pieces!
Marquetry such as Susan produces is still a new concept, but it is already gaining notoriety and is building up its own following of enthusiastic collectors. Before too many moons have passed we will be seeing such things as Susan's "Air Art Marquetry" becoming a norm which others will endeavour to replicate, but Susan's work is the original in this art form.
We hope you enjoy Susan's work as much as we do, we think you will find it is most pleasing to the eye - enjoy!
