Artist Statement

Child-like exploration, anthropological discovery, and mysticism are the underpinnings of my work.  Through personal interpretations of iconography and the reference of organic elements, I explore ways to preserve history while conveying mankind’s connections to the past. The interdisciplinary character of my work allows me to reflect the intersecting arenas of my personal journey as a person of the African diaspora living in America. The eco-tone of my work is a space of discovery and reflective permanence. 

 
Artist Bio

Texas native Anthony Suber is a multimedia artist working and living in the South of the United States.

His work is also derived from his own personal experiences of religion, relationships, and stories he heard as a child. In doing so, Suber seeks to record and present a segment of the human experience that allows the viewer to participate in the compositional construct.  Outside of his studio practice, Suber has served almost two decades as a fine arts educator in Texas. He also currently serves as Creative Director of S.Suber Consulting Group LLC and is one of the founders of the non-profit organization The Black Man Project.
