Susan Kerr  at the 7th International Biennale of Florence Dec 2009

Cyprus Artist Susan Kerr Joachim will exhibit her latest work at the 7th International Biennale of Contemporary Art in Florence, Italy opening on 5th December.

Susan Kerr, who has lived and worked in Cyprus for many years, has been selected by the Internal Committee of the International Biennale of Contemporary Art, Florence, to participate in the 7th International Biennale of Florence which will be held in the historic Fortezza da Basso Conference Centre, from 5th to 13th December.

The Biennale in collaboration with the United Nations, officially participates in the ‘Dialogue Between Civilizations’ program, putting into practice the thoughts expressed by former UN Secretary General. The Biennale is honoured to have the High Patronage of the President of the Italian Republic, the official endorsements of the Ministry of Culture, the Region of Tuscany, and the Province and City of Florence.

The 2009 Biennale has selected artists within the categories of painting – in which Susan Kerr will participate; also sculpture, graphics, mixed media, installations, photography and digital art.

According to views expressed by the organisers and many participants, the Biennale is most democratic and favours the meeting of artists from all over the world who gather together in Florence for this event to exchange ideas, with art as the common language.

…‘ In these paintings of the Cosmos, there has been an investigation into the most essential elements, which lie in the qualities of light, colour and abstraction from natural phenomena, as seen in these latest works entitled ‘Cosmic Light’, presented at this 7th Biennale of Florence. This search for pure abstraction in which colour is freed from the subject,  resolves itself in an expressive study of light and colour. Energetic exchanges with cosmological implications and themes of the creation of existence, realise themselves in alternating chromatic explosions on the canvas. A long lasting interest in the Cosmos and the mysteries of the Universe has evolved into these latest works on the theme of cosmic light in the universe.…
