Susanne Wellm, ‘Face With a Heart’, 2011, Sous Les Etoiles Gallery

Susanne Wellm, b. 1965, is originally a printmaker, educated at the Danish School of Arts and Crafts at the Institute for Unica. Currently living and working in Copenhagen, Denmark, her work includes various photographic techniques, such as Polaroid, Super 8 film, digital photography and collage. Her series Inner Landscapes explores the everyday world in serene color, revealing potential links of real or imaginary stories between objects and people. The resulting images emphasize the beauty of familiar objects and spaces through soft textures and warm lighting. Inner Landscapes was published into a photo book by Kehrer Verlag.

Susanne Wellm has exhibited broadly in Denmark, Japan, China, Finland, and the US, including solo shows at Blue Sky Gallery (Portland, OR) and The National Museum of Photography in Copenhagen. She is represented in several public and private collections, including the Museum of Fine Arts (Houston, TX), Portland Art Museum (OR), Kiyosato Museum of Photographic Arts (Japan) and Harry Ransom Humanities Research Center (Austin, TX).
