Odilia Suanzes

Suanzes’ work is an exploration of the sublime of experiences of landscapes so overwhelming they are beyond description. Her sense of these experiences is what she tries to understand and explore through printmaking.

Her works are related to her mind - the activities and cognitive processes that happen when she paints both consciously and unconsciously. The mind represents a complete whole phenomenon responsible for vital and complex things such as emotions, perceptions, memory, reasoning, learning, creativity, imagination and desires.

Suanzes aims to create a connection between neurology, phenomenology and the sublime. The sublime is awakened in us through the senses as a disorder, of something vastly superior and unknowable to the person perceiving it, it causes feelings of ontological insignificance: finitude and impotence as a being made manifest.

These actions and processes relate directly to how she senses heightened emotional experiences.
