Sue Anne Rische considers herself both a multi-media artist and a process artist, first visualizing an idea and then assembling the needed materials to create the work. Much of her work is repetitive and highly detail oriented, the repetition offering her quiet meditation. Currently she makes artwork about privacy and the pitfalls of sharing anything on the internet. An outside of the box thinker, she is drawn to things that she finds innovative.
“Show me something that I’ve never seen before,” is one of many credos to which she aligns herself. She finds flaws in the art world’s reputation and believes that too many people are intimidated by artwork. Saddened by this, she’s written her first book to welcome the uninitiated into the enriching world of art. She hopes to win over the masses with her own artwork, writing, and videos by presenting art in a new, refreshing, and accessible way.

Metadata is in our calls, our emails, our web seraches, not to mention the face recognition software in our uploaded pictures…
