Suzanne Zoole paints plates with heart and soul


By Mary Cathryn Armstrong
NOVEMBER 1, 2013

In the South, our dinner table is often our grandest form of expression. Love, tragedy, celebration, and heartache are funneled into the heartiest of dishes, with tattered recipe cards and dog-eared cookbooks serving as the ties that bind present and past generations. Using the visual language of food as emotion-signifier, Spartanburg artist Suzanne Zoole has crafted Kitchen Chronicles: Paintings of the Foods We Love, on display at the Artists’ Guild of Spartanburg Gallery at the Chapman Cultural Center. Zoole’s colorful, folksy pieces blend elements of heartfelt sentimentality with an edgy simplicity, providing a retrospective glance into the culture of (plated) Southern hospitality. Whether it’s the familiar sight of buttery grits sharing space with sunny-side eggs or a slice of pie, the award-winning artist hopes to capture how ordinary foods have become extraordinarily ingrained in our cultural memory.
                                     
Suzanne Zoole’s Kitchen Chronicles: Paintings of the Foods We Love will be on display at the Artists’ Guild of Spartanburg Gallery at the Chapman Cultural Center through November 28. The gallery, located at 200 E St. John St, Spartanburg, is open Mon–Sat, 10am–5pm, and Sun, 1–5pm.
