SUSANNA THORNTON is a visual artist who makes photographs, films, videos, drawings and paintings. Her approach is highly engaged in experimentation drawing upon a range of subjects; among her favorite themes: dreams, premonition, mysticism found in nature, celestial phenomena, scripture, ghosts, poltergeist, and witness to life events.

Thornton has been photographing at night since 2002, she works extensively at night and her work explores light. Her minimalist mosaics of ambient color, NIGHTSTILLS first drew acclaim in 2007 in “to:Night,” a cross-collaborative exhibition of the Museum of Modern Art. She is best known for her distinctive use of light, color, and atmosphere in her work. Susanna Thornton most recently exhibited her SKY series (2003-2005) in a solo exhibition in April 2011 at Galerie Arnaud Lefebvre, Paris. Her next major exhibition is forthcoming in Stockholm, Sweden. Thornton’s work has been featured in numerous exhibitions in New York and abroad.
