Susanne Kühn’s brilliantly colored and detailed paintings blur the boundaries between nature and architecture. Borrowing pictorial motifs from traditional Japanese landscapes and spatial relationships from Northern Renaissance painting, Kühn typically portrays solitary women in strange and vibrant interiors or exteriors. Though her work is largely figurative, Kühn adds surreal, abstract elements, such as fantastical flora, and objects that interfere with perspective. Recalling Albrecht Dürer’s engraving St. Jerome in His Study (1514), Kühn’s 2011 painting of the same name depicts a young woman in a forest of pinks and greens, appearing both apprehensive and immersed in her surroundings.
