Inner Landscapes explores the everyday world in serene color, revealing potential links of real or imaginary stories between objects and persons, the latter notable in their absence. Whispers of narrative are gently echoed throughout the series, creating a poetic meditation upon the quiet stories of everyday interiors. Wellm strives to capture experiences that are sensory; the small things which are visible and touchable give structure to her everyday life.
Susanne Wellm, b. 1965, is originally a printmaker, educated at the Danish School of Arts and Crafts at the Institute for Unica. She lives and works in Copenhagen, Denmark.
