Susan Cofer earned her B.A. in Art History at Hollins College in Roanoke, VA, and continued her studies at Georgia State University. Her work has two distinct manifestations: drawings inspired by biomorphic forms painstakingly rendered in a series of vertical lines; and, sculptural portraits commissioned by friends and private patrons constructed mostly of papier mâché also with exacting detail. Cofer has exhibited extensively throughout the Southeast with solo exhibitions at Solomon Projects, Swan Coach House Gallery, Berry College, and Madison-Morgan Cultural Center. In 2012, Cofer had a large retrospective exhibition at the High Museum of Art entitled, Draw Near. Her work belongs to many private, corporate and museum collections. She was featured in a solo exhibition of new works at MOCA GA in 2010, Absence of Certainty, alongside a group exhibition of drawings, Certain Artists, which she curated from MOCA GA’s permanent collection and her own own private collection. Her papier mâché works were the subject of an exhibition entitled The Wonder of it All at MOCA GA in 2018.
