Susanne S.D. Themlitz_Still alive_02/01/13 _03/13/13_Dossier
For his first exhibition in our gallery of Luso-german artist Susanne S. D. Themlitz (Lisboa, 1968) presents his latest drawings and sculptures. Looking at his work we find an explanation for the title of this exhibition. All the elements seem to be suspended in space and in time. Perspectives, landscapes, objects, lines, spots or vestiges are merged.
References to prints and drawings of the History of Art are intertwined with characters, plants, spiral bodies or volumes of color. It turns out to be a relation between the known and the unknown, in some cases, between abstraction and reality. These landscapes and this alive still lifes (Still Alive – Still Life) ofThemlitz there are somewhere between perception and memory.
