About the Artist
Sue Coe, British, (b. 1951). Sue Coe was born in Tamworth England and is a graduate of the Royal College of Art, London. She is a keen observer, a ‘graphic witness’ to realities more often overlooked or avoided. She is a journalist who uses printed images in preference to words.
For a quarter century her images have called attention to events and situations where abuses of power occur, such as sexual violence and political repression, factory farming, meat packing, apartheid, sweat shops, prisons, AIDS, and most recently, war. [DES-7/07]
