Suzanne Song


Blank (2009)

Acrylic on wall and floor


Suzanne Song’s painting with its minimalist aesthetic is at once meditative and transformative of the notion of space and volume on the surface of the canvas.  Architectural space and depth seem to be suggested by the subtlest application of paint summoning presence from a void or possibility from nothing.  As the artist states: "I am interested in the principles of illusion - its contradictions and paradoxes - and how illusion can be replicated to reveal a multifaceted dimension.” This site-specific work was created by Suzanne Song in response to the corner planes of the Caledonia space.
