“The historical face of Sydney Harbour has become a major source for my work. Blackwattle Bay; Mort Bay; Garden Island; Cockatoo Island and The Rocks are remnants of our working Harbour.
These sites are part of the changing nature of Sydney. In my work I try to capture these moments. They become vibrant windows to our environment – fragments of Sydney Harbour. They are part of our maritime history – part of our heritage”.
Suzanne Alexander has lived in Sydney since her childhood and has been a resident of Mosman for over thirty five years. She is one of the suburb’s most active and accomplished artists today, and has pursued her art practice for over thirty years.
In pursuing her subjects Suzanne Alexander has worked on many maritime harbour sites including Blackwattle Bay, Mort Bay, Garden Island, Cockatoo Island and The Rocks. Recently she was part of the artist in residence program with the Australian Society of Marine Artists, working at Darling Harbour and Rozelle Bay on the Sydney Heritage Fleet.
