Born in Ekenäs, Finland 1964 | Lives and works in Helsinki
The imagery in Susanne Gottberg’s paintings comprises quiet, tense moments and situations where something has just departed or will soon occur. In recent years, Gottberg has shifted from depicting nature and sceneries to interiors, examining different elements of furniture, studying fabrics and details of patterns. Gottberg challenges the viewer to experience emptiness and the expectations that come with it.
Susanne Gottberg graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in 1989 and held her debut exhibition in Helsinki that same year. She received the Finnish Art Society’s Ducat Prize in 1991 and was elected Young Artists of the Year in 1994. Gottberg’s works can be found in a number of major Finnish public and private collections.
Galerie Forsblom has been representing Susanne Gottberg since 1989.
