Sue Greeff’s artistic practice looks at the crossovers between biology, psychology and art. Her fascination with the body and mind stems from her experiences as a midwife, psychiatric nurse and mother. These have led her to question the latest breakthroughs in genome editing and its technology. She draws reference from art history as well as iconography borrowed from popular culture, news footage and social media. This visual language seeks to confront the audience with questions around the silenced voice and anonymity of women in a world predicated on patriarchy. She carefully considers her mediums to communicate sexuality, reproduction and emotional states using inks on paper, oil on canvas, ink on latex as well as other experimental mediums. Greeff’s desire is that her artworks will stimulate discussions around the concepts she presents without being didactic. Greeff completed her BA(FA) (2015) at the Michaelis School of Fine Art and currently lives and works in Cape Town. Greeff has participated in a number of solo and group shows and her work is held in private collections locally and internationally.
