Portrait of Suzi


Mark Vallen 1980
Drawing, Pencil on Paper
26″ x 16″

Vallen’s interpretation:

“This is a portrait drawing I created of Hollywood punk rocker, Suzi Gardner. Suzy and I crossed paths while prowling around as denizens of the original punk rock scene in Los Angeles in the late 1970s. She had a look about her that made her an irresistible subject, and so I asked her to sit for a portrait. The result was an artwork that captured the zeitgeist of L.A.’s early nihilistic punk movement. Suzi eventually became a member of the all female rock band L7, a band she is still very much involved with today.”
