In Fictional Space, Susan L. Moore has used a form of fiction to reference reality. Creating small maquette sculptures of interiors, Moore photographs the empty interior landscapes to provoke thought about memory. Moore connects the work to the process of grief, the seemingly abstract concept of loss, the mysteries of the unknown, and juxtaposes light and dark, life and death.

Susan L. Moore holds an MFA in Fine Arts from Washington University, School of Art in St. Louis, Missouri and is currently a Professor at Indiana University South Bend where she serves as Chair of the Fine Arts Department. Moore's photography has been exhibited nationally and worldwide. Her recent landscape images were selected for exhibition at the South Bend Museum of Art. In 2018, she was awarded a residency at the International Studio & Curatorial Program in Brooklyn, New York.
