Susana Belen is an emerging collage artist who sees her practice as a deep way of interconnection between who we are and who we were, with other eras, cultures, creatures and even to other people’s dreams and intimacy. Her imagery makes use of nature’s shapes to create surreal instants, a blink of time in our life, a not always comfortable piece, but constantly trying to reach delight in what we see, classifying her aesthetics as “pleasant weirdness”.

She works, mainly, with old books and magazines of any kind. For her, is particularly important to use what is already created, especially with materials that belonged to other people before, mainly to connect with others through invisible ties, but also, being conscious that we live in a world overcrowded with objects that we can re-use instead of discarding.
