Susan Rosenberg


What happens in an artist’s mind when she looks at objects in the world…or chooses not to look…or chooses to look at the objects in her mind’s eye, overlaid and mediated by other fragments of thoughts and memories?

Susan Rosenberg’s latest works – “Peripheral Visions” – lay out this process for viewers to share, while choosing their own interaction. People who know her work will recognise many of the same elements as in previous works, including her unique sense of colour and her preoccupation with natural images, but, yet again, the work has evolved.

The pictures in “Peripheral Visions” are the result of multimedia experimentation that combines digital image creation using 3D scanning technology and computer drawing techniques, with the direct application of acrylic paint, pencil, watercolour and pastel. This mix of technical enquiry and practice enables Susan to layer multiple, complex fragments of imagery and structure as she grapples with the way in which memory and emotion interact with direct observation.

The Chocolate Factories in Wood Green, London N22, are a landmark development and hub of excellence for the creative industries in the UK.

The project started in 1996 when Collage Arts, an arts development agency, moved into the Chocolate Factory on Clarendon Road and converted several derelict floors of the Factory into artist studios.

What followed was a high demand for creative space and in 2002, Collage Arts renovated Chocolate Factory 2 on Coburg Road, next door.
