Period & Style
Artist Susan Hefuna describes how she prepares to make her drawings by walking through whichever city she finds herself in, revealing how this process helps her “empty her mind” and produce more direct and intuitive work. Hefuna talks about how her experiences of exploring various international metropolises including Istanbul and New York unfold visibly on paper in pieces such as Building (2009). She also characterizes her physical relationship to her work.
