FIGHTING FOR A HOSPITAL BED

The use of the spoon here is rising in power back in the hands of the " gente" . Protesters often march with pots and pans and spoons to amplify their voices.

SILENT PROTEST

6AM

This series uses the spoon as a tour de force, inspired by my learning of the need of patients to supply their own spoon and cup. It seemed absurd.  and my frustrations with bureaucrats and health care resulted in this series.

THE BROKEN HEALTHCARE SYSTEM OF CHILE

 The system is two sided and two faced to put it mildly. The rich have private coverage and   pleasant facilities with the best doctors. The poor, old and disabled have poor facilities, doctors of a various ages and training. and long  wait times for tests and surgeries.



TRYING NOT TO BECOME ONE OF THEM
SCITUATE, MASSACHUSETTS
THE BALANCE OF STAYING ALIVE


THE SURGERY WARD

Symbolism allowed my images to illustrate the moment in time of this traumatizing event. A story I felt needed telling. My voice speaks of exclusion, fear,

and a field of cultural obstacles.

The visitors of the other patients appear stoic in their quest to comfort their loved ones.

5.5 WEEK WAIT FOR BIOPSY REPORT

Collage of mixed media

Bits and pieces of information nothing useful was all we were getting. Actually pieces of a report. The impact of not knowing ones prognosis in this case was torturous. When the results came in it was too late.

She died a month latter.

THE INVISIBLE PEOPLE

Yes, even beyond the grave this poor Chilean is supporting bad bureaucratic administration.


MIRACLE OF BUREAUCRATIC GERMINATION
SUZANNE GAMMON MFA

Now resides in Scituate, Massachusetts. She graduated from The University of Massachusetts Boston majoring in Art History and later completed her studies at The Academy of Art University. While living in Denver Colorado she was a member of the Chicano Humanities and Art Council.


"My work is driven by compassion and justice. When I paint for the sake of practice that is not my true identity as an artist. I visited an artist a couple of years ago who asked what I paint and I answered, commentary on the human condition. His reply was " Oh ya, I did that for a while" like it was some trendy thing to try out.
Having painted five years in acrylics and oils doing abstract, I have found myself back to my first love, watercolor. Mixed media I find as a very useful form of expression and allows for innovation of materials.

My  favorite 3 artists are: Jackson Pollock, Rosa Bonheur and when I need to chill and time travel, I visit the MFA in Boston and view Monet.

I will have updates monthly and expand upon this site.
