About Susan Hyde Greene

 

As I became aware that the history of art is the history of people, I saw the possibility of bringing people together through the language of art.

Following the tradition of women using stitches to mend and heal,  my quiet pictures portray the wonder and miracle that is our world. Through photographs cut apart and fractured pieces stitched together, they offer hope that humans will come together, assuring succeeding generations a healthy, peaceful, safe, and breathing world.
