FokiaNou Art Space is pleased to present a solo show of photographic works by Susan Daboll, an American artist living in Greece since 1999. Daboll explores the notion of sensuality, not only that of human sexuality but also in visually seductive motifs in the physical environment. The show consists of three groups of images: fireworks, bodies, and landscapes, where evidence of the erotic can be found. Daboll is very much a historian of alluring form, which she parlays into imagery of compelling design. Her point of view, personal and slightly mysterious,transforms the ordinary into something else.
Susan Daboll is a visual artist who lives and works in Paros, Greece and NYC. After receiving a BFA in printmaking and photography at Syracuse University, she moved to New York City, where she graduated from the International Center for Photography/New York University Master's program. For more than a decade, she taught photography at NYU. Daboll has had work in many exhibitions including the Brooklyn Museum, University Art Museum in Boulder Colorado and the Monmouth Museum. Earlier this year she spent February at an artist's residency in Italy, and most recently, her work was featured in the 25th Anniversary exhibition at the Holland Tunnel Gallery in Newburgh, NY, and Paros the Lovely at the Holland Tunnel Gallery in Paros. Her work is in many collections including the Arkansas Art Center, Brooklyn Museum, Portland Museum of Art, Chicago Art Institute, AT&T and Pfizer.
FokiaNou Art Space is an artist-run project space in the intimacy of a small apartment in an old building in the center of Athens. The space encourages collaborative creative efforts between Greek and foreign artists, thereby promoting and supporting the local art community. Since 2016, under the direction and curatorship of visual artists Mary Cox and Panagiotis Voulgaris, over 50 exhibitions have been held, as well as workshops and talks.
