Museum Ludwig Koblenz and Susan Swartz Studios are proud to announce Susan Swartz's solo exhibition, A Personal Path. Consisting of approximately 80 major works, Susan's paintings will be featured in the entire museum and will be on view from May 21 to August 2, 2015. The Exhibition will include a number of very recent paintings as well as significant earlier work from private collections and museums.
Susan Swartz explores the landscape through potent colors and richly layered abstract paintings. With her evocation of coastal splendor and mountain drama, Susan follows in the tradition of the great German painters such as 19th century Romantic sage, Caspar David Friedrich, and 20th century icon Gerhard Richter. She is inspired by the intersection of art, nature, and spirituality.
As Susan's relationship with nature has evolved, her painting has progressed from a realist style to an abstract style. A Personal Path reveals the depth of her work and the evolution of her abstract paintings.
The Museum Ludwig was founded in 1992 and its permanent collection was assembled by the well-known collectors Peter and Irene Ludwig. The collection is mainly post-1945 German and French art with well-known artists represented such as Pablo Picasso, Jean Dubuffet and American artists, Jasper Johns, Willem de Kooning and Robert Rauschenberg.
The museum regularly presents major special exhibitions and is proudly featuring Susan Swartz's work.
