Susan Li O’Connor was born in Taipei, Taiwan. Her work deals with the accumulation of everyday objects and the contradictory beauty of those objects as visual eye candy to the destructive quality they have on the environment. While the transformation of a mundane object is the first thing a viewer sees, O’Connor is also entertaining questions of identity, consumerism and consumption within our culture.
O’Connor teaches at the Columbus School for Girls. She taught at the Columbus College of Art and Design from 2005-2014. She is a recipient of the Greater Columbus Arts Council (GCAC) 2013 Dresden, Germany Artist in Residency program, has received grants through the GCAC, was a juror for the 2012 Columbus Arts Festival, was board member and programming committee member of the Ohio Art League from 2008-2010.
