Vivian Suter, best known for colorful abstract paintings on unstretched canvas that are often hung so as to overlap, is now represented by Gladstone Gallery in New York. The gallery will mount a solo show of the artist in spring 2019.
Suter, who has been practicing art for more than 40 years, attracted international attention during the 2014 São Paulo Bienal and subsequent solo shows at the Kunsthalle Basel in Switzerland (also 2014), the Mistake Room in Los Angeles (2016), and the Jewish Museum in New York (2017). In 2017, her work appeared in Documenta 14 and, as part of the Getty Foundation’s Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA, in the exhibition “Guatemala from 33,000 km: Contemporary Art 1960–Present” at Museum of Contemporary Art Santa Barbara.
Suter was born in Buenos Aires, the daughter of Austrian refugees who fled the Nazis in the 1930s. Her family returned to Europe in 1962 when she was a teenager, settling in Basel, Switzerland, where she studied art before traveling throughout North and Central America and settling in Panajachel, Guatemala, a small town in the northeastern part of the country that has been her home base ever since. Her paintings often respond to the lush vegetation and vista views in her surroundings.
