Works by Susanne Simonson

Works by Susanne Simonson at Feigen Contemporary. "...Swedish artist Susanne Simonson's psychological portraits register like memories or dream-like longings that hover and disappear into ghostly blurs and soft color fields. Photo-derived images seem to turn away from the viewer in elusive stuttered phases, smeared into the past tense and the realm of quiet contemplation through lyrical, sweeping paint strokes. The moodiness and introspection of the figurative subjects is enhanced by the washes of color that surround them. Simonson's composed and reductive paintings emphasize the fleeting, apparitional quality of thought and experience.
