The Irish Times, Gemma Tipton: "In 1989, the Berlin Wall came down and Europe changed. “I want to solidify my memories – but how do you make a memory?” asks Susanne Wawra (36), whose work comes from her own history of growing up in East Germany before the fall of the wall. Her large collages on fabric attempt to call up those fractured but significant moments from the past that accumulate to make you the person you are. She describes it as like “being a spectator in my own life”, where memory is something that “hovers between the real and the imagined.” Link

Aidan Dunne (2016): "Susanne Wawra’s memories of travels in Europe and beyond take a more exuberant, enveloping approach in paintings dense and dizzy with sheer sensations."
