I am an upcycled scientist, recently retired, no longer teaching, running a research lab or chairing a science department. Now my art studio is my place of thinking and doing. Similar to my science laboratory, it is where I can ask open-ended questions and ponder the big picture, where I can learn from failure and celebrate success.
I create art on the elastic edge of art and science. Life is magnified and sometimes distorted as if viewed through an imaginary lens. My exploded drawings and prints examine whimsical and serious relationships between organisms, humans, history and politics.
Kathy Suprenant grew up in the village of Hudson Falls in northern New York State near the entrance to the Adirondack State Park. Kathy is proud to be a first generation college graduate and academic junkie who recently retired after 32 years of service at the University of Kansas.
