Cynthia Beer (C. SUKO) is a printmaker and book maker based in Clarksville, Tenn. She graduated from Austin Peay State University in 2015 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts. Her silkscreen work celebrates repetition of the circle as a universally recognized symbol. Beer continues to show her printmaking and book making work in solo and group exhibitions both locally and nationally. She is also an international distributor of small, handwritten, handmade books that she calls “art drops.”
Beer states, “Being raised with both Eastern and Western cultural influences due to my mixed ethnicity has given me a unique perspective. I have an infatuation with industry and diversity. I am becoming a traveler and a gatherer of knowledge. As an artist, I celebrate the circle as a unifying symbol of life in both the vastness of the cosmos and more personal forms. A tiny dot that illustrates such circular cycles is the circadian rhythm, or 24-hour internal body clock, which responds to basic light and darkness. This rhythm causes mental and behavioral fluctuations throughout one full day; however, each person varies in his or her individual reaction. My prints honor uniting philosophies in the form of circles and repetition.”
