French painter.

Born in Macedonia, Suzanna Pejoska came to France when she was 3 years old and began an intense practice of abstract painting at the age of 19. As a self-taught painter, her work finds inspiration both in the Slav Orthodox culture of her childhood and in her intimate memory of the patterns and rhythms of the attire worn by the women from her parent’s village. She joins together the different sections of her large polyptychs like continents with miniature motifs painted on gold leaf, thus encouraging the eye of the viewer to follow this migration through the world of the painting. “Suzanna Pejoska’s painting is a range of sounds, a scale,” writes the critic Frédéric Ferney.

“One cannot look at a painting by Pejoska without reflecting on the subject of abstraction in painting. If to abstract means to choose, transform, separate, but also to link and assemble, then she demonstrates a singular aptitude for it. Yes, colours, rectangles, and squares are all abstractions; that is, shapes that become emancipated from the object. It is as if one moved away from reality. But in truth, one really moves closer to it, as nothing comes between us and something the canvas might imitate, reproduce, or repeat. Each painting refers only to itself.” Pejoska’s works have been shown worldwide. They are permanently exhibited at the Karoline Lau Gallery in London and Munich, and at the Majlis Gallery in Dubai.
