Artist's Statement from the Onion Reality Exhibition

Seasons of the Senses has been specifically created by Susan because she has felt a need for the accessibility of multiple levels of experience. By having other senses enhanced it gives a greater interaction to everyone including those with a sensory loss.

Life has given Susan the hands-on experience and inspiration to create these four artwork panels.

With a background career in fine arts and photography, Ms Oxenham has great prior knowledge of a variety of media. While on several tours of the Art Gallery of New South Wales, she realised that accessibility for people with visual loss is an area that is indeed needing a great enhancement.


Seasons of the Senses, by Susan Oxenham, 2017, was exhibited at the Onion Reality exhibition at Front Up, 9 – 11 Rowley Street, Seven Hills, NSW, from 27 February to 3 March, 2018. Susan was a participant in the Emerge 2017 program supported by Ability Options, the Art Gallery of New South Wales and Accessible Arts. It is funded by Ability Options, the Packer Family Foundation and Crown Resorts Foundation. The program is focused on supporting practicing artists with disability.
