Based in Guatemala for the past thirty years, Argentinian artist Vivian Suter (1949, Argentina) frequently draws on the environment around her by gesturally referencing the sun, rain, wind, and trees throughout her work and tactically incorporating eroded dirt, animal life, rainwater, and plant matter onto the untreated surfaces of her canvases. A disruption of material hierarchy, Suter places the components of her studio on equal footing with the biological world.
The installation continues the artist’s investigation of using the painted medium to create a three-dimensional experience. The ceilings find activation through the unique placement of unstretched canvases that simultaneously highlight and conceit the rectilinear components of the space. While each work is created as an individual, their pairings and compositions allow the paintings to continually and infinitely find new relevance and importance.
