Susannah Hoffmann-Mitscherling is a multi-disciplinary artist based in British Columbia, Canada, with a degree from Emily Carr University of Art + Design (BFA Visual Arts, minor Curatorial Studies).
Having begun a degree in Psychology before pursuing a BFA, her work largely centres around portraiture and human emotion, with a dedicated focus on repetition and series works. Other subjects include the complexity of human relationships, a deep consideration of landscape in relation to the idea of home, and a consistent re-visitation of memory along with its ties to nostalgia and grief.
Give the process-based nature of her painting, monochromatic work has become a focus of her practice. The reflective space and vulnerability it offers proves to be an interesting counter-point to portraiture.
Materials used include acrylic, ink and graphite on canvas or paper, with a separate practice in functional ceramics.
