The Artist:

Susanne Vertel comes from a family that includes several professional artists. Born and raised in a suburb of Chicago, Susanne Vertel received her early art training at the American Academy of Art there, and obtained her Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of California at Berkeley.

The figurative bronze work of Susanne Vertel incorporates both spiritual and aesthetic elements into a synthesis of personal vision that has won her critical acclaim from both peers and collectors. Many people sense a compassionate peacefulness at the core of her work. Vertel believes that the figure is a vehicle for expressing the underlying and often unconscious deeper focus of the mundane activities of everyday life. There is a thread of continuity, a going-within, a peacefulness that permeates much of her work and seems to touch an inner emotional space within the viewer.

The Artist:

A sculpture by Susanne Vertel captures a moment in time that tells a lifelong story. Whether she is depicting a child fishing, a group of women dreaming or an angel made manifest, each face seems molded by a tale whose emotional details the viewer gets to imagine. In essence, Vertel’s people become family with histories as inspired as you wish to make them.

Vertel’s work has won awards from prestigious New York shows and numerous commissions. She was recently awarded a commission for a lifesize sculpture for the National Park Service, currently installed in Yellowstone National Park. She was honored by being invited to the White House to witness President Clinton award a smaller version of her sculpture as a lifetime achievement award to a retiring Park Ranger. A monumental version of her “Babushkas” was commissioned by a private collector to sit in front of a 20 foot sculpture of Lenin which came from the Red Square in Moscow.

Vertel resides in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
