Is there anything she can’t handle
Suzy is the quintessential, incidental public artwork. She has graced the walkways and portals of public spaces for decades, has pulled at the heartstrings and made people offer their last pennies in sympathy, since I was a toddler. I cannot think of a more beautiful found item to have as a part of my artwork than this child that stands for all children in need.
By combining Suzy with my own sculpture of a futuristic teddy, I am offering what I believe to be the ultimate Fringe love token. Don’t forget, Suzy herself has spent her life clutching her charity box – and her teddy bear. And now, she has become a sweet little alien that wants nothing more than to alleviate all human tragedies.
I love the coming together of different characters with different meanings. My artistic universe really is a pop playground of familiar faces and brands. Suzy is an advert for sympathy, and continues to open the hearts of her admirers.
Fringe has used imagery from the mass media, from digital media, and from cartoons to movie culture, to produce Fringe paintings on canvas, figurative plastic and bronze sculptures filled with irony and satire.
Fringe’s story is a combination of high output and well-timed solo exhibitions that have launched his signature series’. He has held eight major solos, sold out exhibitions globally. Born in 1976.
