Danish artist Susanne Wellm explores the everyday world in serene color, revealing potential links of real or imaginary stories between objects and persons. In her series Inner Landscapes, Wellm composes open narrative visual poems and stories through personal, found and historic archive materials, painting, drawing, Polaroids and film still photography. Whispers of narrative are gently echoed throughout the body of work, a meditative arc that quietly pulses beneath the surface of the image and the viewer’s own “inner landscape.”
