Suzy Costello, sculptor and printmaker
Suzy is a New Zealand artist studying Fine Arts at Massey University, Wellington campus. She enjoys printmaking and sculpting in a variety of materials including bronze, glass and ceramics. During her time at Massey she has focused on installations.
Her recent project involves collecting hundreds of discarded cicada shells (kihikihi wāwā), pōhutukawa stamen and wood from her local area. This has led to an exploration of the narratives and materiality of these natural objects and a curiosity about the interrelationship between art and science to further our understanding of non-human living forms.
