Susanne Kühn: Palette
Beck & Eggeling Vienna VIENNA | AUSTRIA MAY 16, 2019 – JUL 02, 2019
In her exhibition “Palette” at Beck & Eggeling International Fine Art Vienna, Susanne Kühn presents new works that directly relate to the works in her exhibition “Korrespondenzen Bosch & Kühn – Beastville” at the Gemäldegalerie der Akademie der Bildenden Künste Wien.
The black-and-white drawings combine the vocabulary of historical printmaking with digital aesthetics, thus crating a unique pictorial space for diverse narratives: young women run through a dark forest illuminated by an ominous, gigantic palette (Palette, 2019); or in Picutremaking Dissolves, 2019 Susanne Kühn stages herself as a medieval painter with worms slithering all over her palette where the image of Madonna dissolves into swathes of black paint.
Her new paintings CyberPalette I and II, are based on a luminous yet reduced color range that developed out of Kühn’s exploration of the idea of drawing over the past two years. Here, newly invented palette forms take on a sensuous character, seeming like floating, computer-generated organs in historically allusive spaces.
