Susan Dorothea White
The Long Arm of The Law, 1987-88 (detail)
carved wood, fabric and mixed media, 250 x 200 x 50 cm
Humor, more pointed than funny, is the thread of continuity throughout Susan Dorothea White's art, regardless of medium. A case in point is The Long Arm of the Law. It is created with exactly what the title states... a very long black-robed arm extends out into the gallery room with a legal document in its hand!
