Sue Coe PRINTMAKING WORKSHOP
Friday Oct 27, 11am, Printmaking Studio
Sue Coe is a contemporary English artist, noted for her intensely political graphic illustrations and activism. Born on November 28, 1951 in Staffordshire, England, she grew up near a slaughterhouse, which instilled in the artist a lifelong passion for animal rights activism. This political sensibility characterizes Coe’s work, which often explicitly makes animal rights and other social issues its central subject. Along with her investigation of cruelty against animals, Coe has also explored topics such as sweatshops, prisons, AIDS, war, and anticapitalism throughout her work. Her illustrations have appeared in a wide variety of publications, including The New York Times, The Nation, Entertainment Weekly, The Progressive, The New Yorker, Rolling Stone and Artforum. She lives and works in upstate New York.
