The exhibition of the Basque artist Susana Reberdito shows a contrast between two of her series: on the one hand the completely new series of sculptural still lifes and on the other the spectacular and sonorous paintings of the series Meeresrauschen. The vitality of this artist is evident in all her works, with a courageous stroke and a great mastery of form and color. As a lover of large formats and the use of everyday objects as motifs, she over-dimensions them until they lose their original character and acquire a different nature for the viewer. Her career has been very international, with stays of several years in Tokyo, New York and Madrid, and her work is part of important public and private collections.
