Susy Gómez

Susy Gómez (Pollença, Mallorca, 1964) is a multidisciplinary artist who lives and works in Palma de Mallorca. She began her training in the Faculty of Fine Arts in Barcelona, the city where she settled and found the right atmosphere for developing her creative ability. In the early 1990s she began holding her first exhibitions, standing out as one of the most promising artists of the period.

 

Using different media – photography, sculpture, installation, painting, drawing, video and performance – this artist develops autobiographical work in which everyday objects become metaphors: dresses, hearts, eyes, houses, flowers, boats, butterflies, chairs… Her work has mainly been constructed on the basis of a reflection on identity with a desire to explore the intersection between art and spirituality, social action and individual identity, appealing to the position occupied by the subject in the contemporary world.

 

Her work forms part of the following collections belonging to national and international entities and art centres: Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía (Madrid), Artium de Álava (Vitoria), Institut Valencià d’Art Modern (Valencia), Es Baluard Museu d’Art Modern i Contemporani de Palma, Centro de Arte Contemporáneo de Málaga, Murugami Hirai Museum, (Tokyo), Col·lecció Testimoni, Fundació “la Caixa” (Barcelona), Collection L’Oreal, Musée d’Art Moderne et d’Art Contemporain-Nice, among others.
