Born in New York, Suprina studied sculpture in Philadelphia but never
graduated. Her first job was with the Macys Thanksgiving Day Parade
where she says she learned her craft as head sculptor. Her unique
visuals stem from her years of promotional prop making. Some of her
clients were Annie Liebovitz, Apple Computer, Bloomingdales and the
Bronx Zoo. Finding that world so wasteful, she developed a love for the
found object and began her life long journey creating figurative/narrative
art. She has shown in Chelsea, Governors Island, Chicago, Scottsdale,
Southampton, Brooklyn, Harlem, Newark, Morristown and The Monmouth Museum.
"As I continue to practice my craft, my work has visually settled in-between
beauty, darkness and humor. Blending these three attributes, the word
“carnival” comes to mind. In this sense, I use carnival/theatrical visuals to
aid in communication on social, political and environmental themes. The
sensibilities of ‘carnival’ feel very approachable, its humorous side
allowing viewers to examine and probe my works without intimidation.
I celebrate us, and our absurdity. We are beautiful, horrid, tragic, and profoundly funny."
