Underneath the Eyes
28.9.2012 - 20.1.2013
Helsinki Art MuseumNanna Susi (b.1967) is one of the most successful and popular female artists in Finland today. The expressive works sweep the viewer along to an exciting adventure, to stories about lives both big and small. Susi’s extremely acute sensitivity is full of power, and the colours propel the spectator along from one mood to the next. The rich symbolism in Nanna Susi’s paintings offers endless possibilities for interpretation.
Susi’s 2012 exhibition in the Helsinki Art Museum introduces a completely new set expressive paintings. The works reflect profound questions: Why are we alone? What are the factors that change us as human beings? “I’m excited that I’m allowed to admire life through art” Susi says “my approach on the matter relies on straightforwardness and colour”. The Helsinki Art Museum is one of the largest art museums in Finland and the Nordic countries. The Art Museum organises several temporary exhibitions each year in collaboration with artists and international art institutions.
