Juror

Suzanna Scott is an artist whose work explores feminist themes and visual ideas in and of the body. Her viral Coin Cunt series of inverted change purses, stitched to resemble vulvae, portrays & endless cultural associations between women, money and power. At the same time this collection serves as a timely symbol of empowerment and equality for all women.

Entering her third decade as an artist, Scott employs a range of materials, including stone, wax, fiber, paper, resin and the occasional found object. Her work has been widely exhibited in the United States and can be found in private collections worldwide. Scott currently lives and works in Ruston, Louisiana.
