About the Work

Printmaking techniques with applied media in this approximately five feet tall monoprint reference map making. Trees, roots, grids, clouds in soft ochre, greens, gold, silver and black form a playful narrative titled Mercator. Cartographer Gerardus Mercator in 1569 created the Mercator projection, a cylindrical map that became a standard nautical guide because it could represent lines of a constant course. Toronto-based artist Susan Collett studied printmaking and ceramics at the Cleveland Institute of Art. She is the winner of the Winifred Shantz Award and is a member of the IAC (International Academy of Ceramics) and RCA (Royal Canadian Academy of the Arts). Her work can be found in numerous collections, including the Queen Elizabeth Hotel, Montreal, The Four Seasons Hotel, Bata Shoe Museum, the Gardiner Museum of Ceramic Art, The Canadian Clay & Glass Gallery, and the Bank of Montreal.
