The Art Academy – London

Sue Corke



Sue Corke, Head of Printmaking at the Art Academy, works across printmaking, drawing and installation. She studied Fine Art and Digital Arts at Middlesex University and graduated from the MA Illustration Authorial Practice at University College Falmouth. Corke’s interest in science and story telling also fuels a more conceptual approach. Working in collaboration with German artist Hagen Betzwieser, she has created star maps and a lunar narrative in luminescent pigment which changes over time. Working under the title: We Colonised The Moon, the duo recently produced another print impregnated with the smell of the surface of the moon, a project developed in conjunction with an industrial chemist. In 2007 Corke won a Ferdynand Zweig travel scholarship to undertake practical creative research in the field of contemporary printmaking and illustration in northern Europe. She was also the Artist in Residence at Amsterdam’s Grafisch Atelier in 2007 and was awarded a five year residency at Acme Studios Fire Station in London in 2010.
