About the Artist

Nicki Sucec (Seattle) received a 2010 GAP for time and materials to work on her upcoming exhibition titled Ascension. Sucec’s work touches upon issues such as social stigmatization, economic exclusion and environmental destruction. Sucec wants to delve deeper and to explore ways that humans attempt to transcend their circumstances, sometime successfully, sometimes not. This “Ascension” is the subject of her upcoming show. The central sculpture for her upcoming exhibition will be comprised primarily of two decommissioned, helicopter rotor blades.

Sucec is the recipient of a 2012 CityArtist Project award from Seattle’s Office of Arts & Cultural Affairs.
