Susana Gaitán was born in Valencia, Spain, in 1976. She studied at the Faculty of Fine Arts of San Carlos and completed her education with an Erasmus scholarship at CVUT in Prague, Czech Republic. She currently lives and works in Majorca.
Her work is based on humanism, viewing the universal theme of decay and death as a driver of life, human fragility and strength. It focuses on the relationship with nature and the search for balance, on what makes us human.
The representation of what is human through images of women is borne from the desire to capture a woman’s, or better yet a painter’s, view of another woman – no more and no less – and to defy any cultural expectations and inner struggle.
