Artist in Residence – Therese Eisenmann

Iceland seems like a dream for me.
The sharp-shaped forms because of the special light, the empty spaces all around, the large wilderness, the omnipresence of water.

Walking every day along the shore, often barefoot in lava sand, watching the various flotsam, the changing faces of the sea, of light, of wilderness. Listening to the excited birds, the changing sounds of water, a new amazing sight every day…strong emotions.

What I often tried before: getting even closer to the gifts and secrets of water – waterfalls , lakes, glaciers, mountain creeks or the unrestrained sea – I am experiencing more on this wild, demanding, enigmatic island.

Once I wrote into my diary:  ...I am longing and stuck in this indescribable search.  This power in the water, continuity, the incessant motion, the loud, the mighty, something sounding like music – eternities.

Artist in Residence – Suzanne Yeremyan

Suzanne Yeremyan is an artist from Providence, Rhode Island [US]. Her practice revolves around the perspective that there is a delicate collaboration that exists between darkness and beauty. Through her practice, she attempts to translate and emulate these findings. Sources of inspiration are intangible or tangible, internal within the self or external around the self. Emotion and environment.

Her work reflects abrasion, corrosion, decay, woe and isolation. Works are on paper, glass, and repurposed materials such as textile, metal, and plastic – using ink, charcoal, and powder pigment. Finding the process of traditional, “correct” printmaking to be limiting for her practice, Suzanne’s experimental approach calls for less immaculacy and precision.

Working mostly with monotype and drypoint, self-made tools and solvents such as wire brushes and salt sprays are utilized.

In addition to printmaking, Suzanne’s body of work also includes mixed media abstractions, painting, illustration, collage, as well as music – using with sound as another way to explore the same concepts that inform her visual work. Despite a relatively diverse body of work, the purpose behind each piece remains consistent: there is warmth in darkness, there is beauty in the harsh.
