Suddick's work deals with issues of identity, place and the seeking of personal bonds to something that is shared or re-produced, acknowledging the imprint these entities leave on individuals (or vise-versa). This includes repeated symbols and artistic themes used across cultures.

SPEAK FREELY is composed of light and shadow filtered through digitally produced papercuts. Using the cross-fertilized (as well as often conflicting) European, North African and Arabic roots of her own Maltese heritage as a jumping off point, Suddick creates a cacophony of gestures and symbols that imitate sharing and appropriation across traditions, beliefs and practices.
