A crime of love and passion. Susanne Husemann isn‘t grasping for the secret of the painter and his women, whatever it may be. She reveals the movement, the gesture, the discourse decided within these 17th century Dutch interiors. The conduct of the lacemaker, the magic of a seated figure, and she shows only the sitting, the imperious silhouet- tes, the delineations of a being, not the person. The eroticism of the vanishing, the grasping of the detail. She paints, once again on Billy cardboard, the candlestick of the Art of Painting, the allegory of the allegory. If it exists, even if only in Utopia, in Susanne Husemann‘s studies a violent love is experienced that is non-destructive.

“Susanne’s sensitive and hard-hitting collection probes beneath the surface and creates her own, powerful visual perspectives on life in this volatile, and culturally and historically rich region — where she has now live for quite some years,”
Nageen Hyat, Norman gallery Islamabad
Her style of painting could be classified as near abstract. Even though bordering on abstraction, the faces she sketches, despite being a wee bit foggy, display profound emotions and feelings. They mirror the sensitive, profound, and poignant nature of the artist, how she reads deep into human emotions, into the human soul.
