In the «Shine & Dine» Room
The current exhibition
«Object Pictures» by Susanna Frey
Susanna Frey was born in 1954 and raised in Basel. She has worked as an artist in Basel since she was 23 years old.
The mixed technique of painting and objects from nature as well as from foreign cultures is an integral part of her work. It is her interest to create a new union in her works. On her travels Susanna Frey finds inner and outer inspiration. Susanna's abstract compositions radiate lightness, they are balanced compositions of colour. Her object paintings are relief-like, dynamic and excitingly designed, in which background and foreground merge. Natural materials or objects from foreign countries are «in the centre», but with a lively colour scale in the «background» they form a single, harmonious and moving unit.
Her travels are both sources of inspiration and sources of material. She transfers the resulting inner pictorial worlds to the outside and creates poles of calm and places that invite one to linger. She creates object pictures in which the light is integrated and shines, thus exactly fitting for our seminar and banquet room «Shine & Dine». With the combination of painting, textile elements and found objects Susanna has found her unmistakable independent form of expression. We show a small selection of her works in the Teufelhof in the room «Shine & Dine».
We cordially invite you to get to know Susanna Frey and her idiosyncratic, pictorial forms of expression at the vernissage. The artist and we from the Teufelhof are looking forward to your visit. The exhibition lasts until March 2020 and can be visited via the Teufelhof reception, subject to availability.
