Susie Green (b.1979) works predominantly across painting, performance and sculpture, focussing on empowerment through dress, fetish, & disguise. At the heart of her work is an exploration into the personal and political powers of intimacy, vulnerability and transgression. Her work is a poetic and rhythmic exploration of form and subject, often featuring representations of expansive, adorned bodies looking for love, security and belonging.

She received a BA in Fine Art from Newcastle University (2002) and an MA in Fine Art, Chelsea College of Art UAL (2009).

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

In 2020 she was selected for a 3-month residency at Nida Art Colony, Lithuania, in association with BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art, Gateshead, UK.
