Studio 3A Painting January to April 2005 Susanna Bluhm's paintings are an exploration of sensory experience. Recognisable images and abstract mark-making interact as though they were characters in a play. The meaning of the ensuing narrative is activated for the viewer by looking at it. The act of looking becomes a feast for the imagination as the 'characters' in the paintings engage in various sensory/sensual acts such as touching, sex, eating, and temperature changes. A literal translation of the narrative becomes irrelevant, with this visual language transcending verbal language barriers.
