January to April 2005Susanna Bluhm (USA), Whippy tide for furry
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.

The Process Room

Susanna Bluhm’s work was shown in the Process Room, West Wing First Floor Galleries from March 29 until April 10 2005.
