Drawing from the series Halter Break, to appear in
Susan McCann’s February 2009 exhibition at Galerie
Lafayette in Lafayette, Louisiana.
Susan McCann is a multi-disciplinary artist currently
based in Brooklyn, NY. She received an MFA in
multi-media from Mississippi State University and
works with a broad range of materials.
Her current work concentrates on childhood memories
and connections to her native Mississippi. In her most
recent body of work, Susan taps into her recollections
of witnessing her father and brothers breaking colts
on their family's horse farm. Susan uses this
experience of “halter breaking,” as a metaphor for
conflicts, both inner and outer. For more information
