Suzanne Moss: Make Light of It

Foundational to Suzanne’s art practice is a love of diagrams and luminous natural phenomena. These provide her with key visual language to respond to philosophical inquiry – questions such as ‘What might love look like?’ High-key colour compositions explore optical, rhythmic, spatial and poetic possibilities while offering a reassessment of the intersection between ancient mandalas and geometric abstraction,” she writes. “I associate three qualities to formlessly translate into paintings: luminosity, emanation and a sense of the infinite.” Several paintings in this exhibition were inspired by the 13th century Persian sufi mystic, Rumi.
