Susanne Kathlen Mader (1964) works as a painter, sculptor and graphic artist. She was born in Germany and made her art studies at the University of Art in Braunschweig; thereafter she went to live for seven years in Grenoble, France. There she was teaching art before she established her permanent studio (1998) at Høvik, close to Oslo, Norway.

Her main subject is the effect of colours in abstract paintings and/or combined with three dimensional, geometrical elements in site-specific installations. In Norway she has obtained grants and a series of public commissions and she has exhibited frequently. This year she will also participate at the Norwegian Biennial for Sculpture.
