Susannah Martin was born in New York City, USA and currently lives and works in Frankfurt, Germany. She studied painting at New York University together with Louise Lawler and Sherrie Levine. Her works can be found in important international private collections.

Susannah Martin focuses without exception on nude paintings embedded in landscapes. Ignoring erotic motivations the nude has always been a symbol for the human being in its purest form, its original form, its primordial form. Unbinding from all possible indicators such as clothing, property and status it frees itself from the social identity in a time of pure being.
