My name is Susan Turcot. I am an artist looking at my own practice and those of others to see where we are and how we can respond more directly to the spaces we inhabit. Since the 1990s I have investigated large-scale ecological and economic processes such as deforestation and the exploitation of other natural resources, as well as people by working and recording in situ. I like to balance my personal drawing practices with collaborations that emerge out of a need to respond to the many human-induced ecological crises surrounding us. Observation, portraiture, reportage drawing, sound work are all methods that interest me when exchanging with researchers and various people interested in collaborating.

I use this website to keep track of my research, teaching, and other assorted activity. Over time, as it grows, it will become not only a feed of notes but also a reference tool that helps contextualise processes and questions that have been present in past works. Input and feedback is very welcome.
