Susan Flavell’s practice has recently shifted away from figures of animals into the human form. Her cardboard sculptures are heroic in scale but not in material. Flavell’s works have many similarities with drawing – the lines of construction, including the ‘mistakes’, the rubbing outs, the overdrawing – can be seen. Out of the physicality of modelling cardboard on this scale has also emerged a struggle between the artist and the apparent ‘agency’ of each figure. Susan has an extensive history exhibiting in gallery and outdoor contexts in Western Australia. Her work is held in the State’s major collections.
