Susanne Khouri's new exhibition, 'Equilibrium',
is on at Depot Artspace, Devonport, Auckland, from 8 - 25 August.
"These works grew out of the quietness of the lock-down period,
during which time I had plenty of opportunities for reflection.
I began a process of drawing shapes, which I felt had an appeal
because they inspired a kind of open-ended interpretation.
I liked how I could bunch the shapes up in clusters,
to make them small or large, or leave lots of space in between
and so notice some sort of meaning change.
They then also became metaphors for the small and large things
we carry within us, involuntarily mostly.” – Susanne Khouri
Susanne Khouri is a Swedish-New Zealand printmaker.
She has a Bachelor of Fine Arts, majoring in Printmaking.
The imagery is from her drawings or her photographs.
Her work is mainly abstract, using aquatint plate printing
which allows her a subtlety of tonal variations as backgrounds,
and screenprinting as imagery.
