Art Bermondsey Project Space is pleased to announce
Now You See It
new 3d works
4-30 April 2016
Suse Stoisser was born in Leibnitz in Southern Styria, Austria in 1964.
Stoisser’s figures appear as a reduction of human forms, in the shape of silhouettes, connoting eroticism and the metamorphic potency of nature.
The artist’s oeuvre features classical as well as contemporary references, spanning from the 17th century Dutch painter Veermer to the Italian Neorealist film director Antonioni .
Suse Stoisser considers her research as a progressive process, in which individual objects can be characterized as adaptable, alive, oscillating, organic, opaque and crystalline.
Suse Stoisser presents the dialectic nature of a piece via the contradictory complexity of the material itself, and encourages us to think about the importance of the work in progress and process.The exhibition Now you see it at Art Bermondsey Project Space will show the creative evolution of the artist between Vienna and Spain.

Rediscovery of DAS SCHWERE
Silvia Martín Gutiérrez
The Austrian artist Suse Stoisser, born in Leibnitz in Southern Styria in 1964, shows a high level of creativity in her artistic oeuvre and is focused in recovering inspiration by turning energy and illusion into a feasible utopia. She shows us that it is possible to search for what Rilke called ”das Schwere”, referring to the difficult and the heavy, that what remains and what resists. In her investigations of materials, she switches from inclusion to collages of individual elements, the application of suggestive colors to metallic monochromacity, at the same time creating an ethereal character out of polycarbonate substance. Despite of the strong physical presence of Stoisser’s artwork, we are struck by the elusive character captured in these objects. The figure appears as a reduction of human forms, in the shape of silhouettes, connoting eroticism and the metamorphic potency of nature. In combination with the quintessence of creative vitality Stoisser’s London Exhibition Now you see it at Art Bermondsey Project Space provides a survey of the creative evolution of the artist.
The artist’s oeuvre features classical as well as contemporary references. In Vermeer’s paintings lies a dichotomy between what is and what is not visible; in Antonioni’s movie Blow-up the dichotomy is between what is seen and what is not seen; in Alain Resnais’ Hiroshima mon amour what is said and what is not said. These contrasts are continually present in Stoisser’s oeuvre. Open figures, cut figures, obverses and reverses, sculptural subject and sculptural object. Suse Stoisser presents the dialectic nature of a piece via the contradictory complexity of the material itself, and encourages us to think about the importance of the work in progress and process.
