Susie Green (b.1979) works predominantly in painting, performance and sculpture, focussing on the human body as a site for ornamentation and sensuality. At the heart of her work is an exploration into the personal and political powers of intimacy, vulnerability and transgression. Her work is often a meandering, poetic and rhythmic exploration of form and subject, delicately balanced between suggestive and explicit content, with representations of decorated bodies looking for love, security and belonging.

She received a BA in Fine Art from Newcastle University (UK) in 2002 and an MA in Fine Art from Chelsea College of Art (UAL, UK) in 2009. In 2015 she took part in The Syllabus, a 1-year alternative learning programme led by Wysing Art Centre (Cambridge, UK).

She has received grants from Arts Council England (UK), Fluxus Art Projects (UK/FR), and The Elephant Trust (UK) amongst others.
