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 please visit mariemccann.com.
