Susanne Kühn : Born 1969 , Leipzig, Germany : Lives in Freiburg, Germany

Susanne Kühn’s lithographs focus on an exploration of the concept of landscape drawing. Kühn imagines landscape as a threshold between nature and urbanism. The drawings and lithographs range from the depiction of architectural elements to seemingly more traditional landscape renderings.

Kühn often reconstructs compositions derived from Northern Renaissance etchings and Japanese woodcuts. She introduces other elements such as trees, grass and rocks which reference European art history while simultaneously altering the light, creating and distorting perspective.

Embedded in the art-historical tradition of landscape drawing the picture plane is a platform for a formal experimentation with space, color, structure, reality and abstraction rather than content or meaning.

Susanne Kühn studied painting and graphic art at Leipzig’s School of Visual Arts. After completing her studies, she attended Hunter College and the School of Visual Arts in New York. In 2002 she received a fellowship at Harvard University for the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Studies.

Susanne Kühn’s work is the collections of: Museum Frieder Burda (Germany), The Zabludowicz Collection, London (UK), Neue Museum für Kunst, Freiburg (Germany), Sammlung der Landesbank Sachsen (Germany), Sammlung der Sparkasse Leipzig (Germany) and Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art, Kansas City, MO (USA).

A solo exhibition of Kühn’s work was shown at Kunstverein Freiburg (Germany) in 2007 and at the MCA/Denver (USA) in 2008.
