WORKS FROM THE L.A. TIMES OPINION COLLECTION FEBRUARY 2- MARCH 19, 2023 OPENING RECEPTION: FEBRUARY 2ND, 6:00PM-9:00PM Susan Tibbles is one of those rare individuals whose work bridges the gap between Fine Art and Illustration. Her assemblages of found objects, words and imagery create a visual vocabulary all can understand. Her work speaks for itself, compelling the audience to look and listen.


For the past 30 years, the artist distilled controversial and complex subject matter and politics into captivating and uncanny images. She not only captures the essence of the subjects she is dealing with, but also she does so with a subtle, yet powerful aesthetic sensibility.


Tibbles’ work has shown in both Museum and Gallery exhibitions across the United States and Europe, along with op-ed pages of various publications including the Los Angeles Times, San Francisco Chronicle, Washington Post, and the Baltimore Sun.


“Susan’s work expands on illustrative norms, elevating it to an extraordinary level by incorporating dimensional objects and imagery from Americana that evokes profound responses in unexpected and delightful ways”.
