Susanna Heller (b.1956, USA)
The metropolis has long been the primary source of inspiration for Susanna Heller, often navigating her surroundings from a variety of perspectives, including bridges, skyscrapers, tunnels and scaffolding. In 1998, Susanna was invited to work from a studio space on the 91st Floor of the former World Trade Center Tower, resulting in a birds-eye vantage of the energy, excitement and overall chaos of the city below. In the days after 9/11, she returned to that site to begin a process of drawing and documentation, which led to a new series of paintings surrounding the themes of absence, fragility and destruction. Her work is represented in both public and private collections.
