I SAW A PIECE OF METAL

Neil Jordan   I saw a piece of metal, standing, with an empty hole where part of a human should have been. I thought, how interesting, we’ll all be an absence someday. I later was a guest at Susie Stoisser’s back garden and saw huge, rusted metal dice cubes lying in the grass. As if […]

_rosa cloud_

The Art of Suse Stoisser: Mediation between Worlds WHAT DO WE TRULY SEE? WHERE HAS SEEING TAKEN US? Guenther Holler-Schuster   Suse Stoisser’s art is rooted in opposites. Trained as both a painter and a sculptor, she refrains from favoring either medium. She deliberately combines such media as photography, video, prints or painting with such […]

THREE-DIMENSIONAL OPTIONS BETWEEN TRANSPARENCY, PERSPECTIVE AND IMAGINATION

Klaus Kada   The quality of the artistic work of Sues Stoisser is characterized by her plastic, graphical, as well as three-dimensional skills, together with her sensitive approach towards questions about space, material, philosophical issues and phenomena of perception. By arranging layers of materials of transparent, specular and opaque nature she creates diverging profiles, and […]

LACK AND LOSS IN THE ART OF SUSE STOISSER

She shows us that it is possible to search for what Rilke called […]

THE RECENT SCULPTURE OF SUSE STOISSER

Lee B. Brown   When you are confronted by Suse Stoisser’s 2008 piece, And-Dna, you are struck by how light is its overall effect in spite of its use of such heavy material as steel and sandstone. The polished steel embedded in the stone gives the surface a mirror-like trompe l’oiel effect, as if you […]

ON THE BORDER TO BEAUTY

Vicen´Altaió   In few years, the acceleration of the language of art and its expansion have been as powerful as has been its drift off course. In the last decades, from pure abstraction up to now, with modernity reaching its limits, still we were able to see the killing of the medium  with conceptual art. […]

THE ART OF CONTEMPLATION

Stefanie Viereck   A black figure, like a vintage silhouette portrait, springs lightly across a printed, perforated tarpaulin swinging freely in space. In the lower section, transparent fabric allows a glimpse of other silhouettes – those of gallery visitors. The shadowy visitors, the shadowy black floating figure, both are equally real and unreal. Suse Stoisser […]
