ARTIST'S STATEMENT: "I know what I like. Not much. But I think what I take away may leave an echo. Which is something ...
A new friend, pointing to a chair in my studio, asked if that's where I sit to think. Without thinking I said "I don't think". Then not wanting to seem too flip, "it's more like waiting, or waiting for something that's already there that's waiting."
SUSAN RODGERS maintains studio in Key West, FL and Lenox, MA.
