I am Suza Schiele, a German born multimedia artist currently based in Langs Beach, New Zealand. ‘Cosy Cosmos’ is the name of my ongoing body of work of mixed media painting, collage and sculpture. It was inspired by idiosyncratic microbiological research bringing together ‘facts’ and feelings on the origin of life, the perplexities of human existence and complexities of identity, a ‘misch-masch’ of personal life experience and disparate cultural references. ‘Urban Nomad’ or ‘Kunstdesign and Interactivity’ are my ongoing public outdoor projects, participate installations and performances that examine our collective need for shelter, comfort, happy-ness, together-ness and peace.
Recent solo exhibition: ‘Welcome to Cosy Cosmos’ from 12th December – 19th February 2017 at the Whangarei Art Museum – Te Manawa Toi, The HUB, Dent St, Town Basin, Whangarei
Current group show: ‘Reckless Abandonment, surrender to the moment’ from 12 April to 5 May 2018 at Megan Dickinson Gallery, 12 Rust Ave, Whangarei
