Sue Chenoweth's installations and paintings are investigations of memory, myth, and place explored through historical narrative, architectural as well as the physical and biological sciences. Through her exploratory research and travel, she often paints "pre-memories" of adventures before she experiences them, investigating the similarities between the 'pre-memory' and the 'actual experience.'
The subject matter following her research investigates a wide variety of subjects, whether it is swimming with great white sharks or exploring the sub-basements of estate houses of the gilded age, her work always traces back to a universal understanding of the human experience. Through these encounters Chenoweth captures the archetypes of the common man and delves into the everyday experience of being human. By combining seemingly disparate subject matter, Chenoweth comes up with unique connections often overlooked.
