"Swedish artist Susanne Sjogren, works in the field of interior design, successfully combining architect-interior decorating projects with the instinct of an artist. Despite the rationality that characterizes the Swedish art school in which she was educated, the inspiring source of her creations is nature itself, that is emphasized by the use of natural materials.
She herself states about her work that “the shapes are found within me and nature is my source of inspiration. In my art you find extreme contrast as well as balance and harmony”. She uses often primary geometric shapes which then dissolve into soft sinusoids that look to lanceolate and zoomorphic, phytomorphic shapes (for example, the feet of the furniture are often in the shape of claws, or a part of a chaise longue in the form of a raven’s beak).
These shapes form the structural elements, which are then combined at times with black and white upholstery, which almost seem like new representations of yin and yang. Works such as You and I, exhibited here, are created not as industrial production pieces, but present an extremely high level of individual, handmade craftsmanship, which combines utility with abstract forms that are soft and captivating, and which ultimately transform the living space into a place within art itself"
