*Exhibition extended till 16th Sep*
“These works grew out of the quietness of the lock-down period, during which time I had plenty of opportunities for reflection.
I began a process of drawing shapes, which I felt had an appeal because they inspired a kind of open-ended interpretation. I liked how I could bunch the shapes up in clusters, to make them small or large, or leave lots of space in between and so notice some sort of meaning change. They then also became metaphors for the small and large things we carry within us, involuntarily mostly.” – Susanne Khouri
Exhibition runs from Saturday 8th – 16th September
Exhibition Opening: Saturday 3-5pm
Susanne Khouri is a Swedish-New Zealand printmaker. She has a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Auckland University, majoring in printmaking.

Her work is mainly abstract, using Aquatint-plate printing which allows her a subtlety of tonal variations as backgrounds and screen-printing as imagery. The imagery is from her drawings or her photographs. She works in her studio at home.
