Nine Lives And The Foyers
25.10.2013 - 24.11.2013
One of the most successful Finnish artists, Nanna Susi (b. 1967), had her exhibition Nine Lives And The Foyers at Korjaamo Galleria 25.10. - 24.11.2013. Susi paints with discipline and enormous intensity: Her expressive style utilises thick layers of paint and strong colours that fuse metallic glow into a voluminous texture. An ebullient joy of life and peculiar obscurity are combined in Susi’s paintings, creating tension that is impossible for the observer to escape.
After her graduation from the Finnish Academy of Fine Arts in 1997, Susi rose to prominence through Tampere Art Museum’s Young Artist of the Year 2000 exhibition, and has held numerous private shows around Finland and Europe ever since, as well as taken part in group exhibitions on an equal scale. In 2012, Susi’s production from the years 2011 and 2012 was showcased in a vast exhibition at the Helsinki Art Museum Tennispalatsi. In Korjaamo Galleria’s exhibition, Susi introduced a series of completely new works.
