ARTIST’S STATEMENT
SUSAN PRODUCES WORKS IN TRADITIONAL AND DIGITAL MEDIA, VIDEO AND SPOKEN WORD. ABOUT HER WORK SHE SAYS: “I HAVE HAD A LONG FRIENDSHIP WITH THE BLUES. THEY ARE THE SPARKS OF MAGIC THAT IGNITE MY ARTISTIC FLAME. THE BLUES IS AN INTOXICATING, SEAMLESS BACKDROP OF FAMILIAR NOTES, AND RYTHMS THAT MAKE ME FEEL I AM HOME AND SPRINGBOARDS MY IMAGINATION TO UNRAVEL ON CANVAS.
MY PALETTE IS BRIGHT AND BOLD CREATING TENSION BETWEEN IMAGE AND FEELING. IN MY
PAINTINGS I EMBRACE THE RICHNESS OF COLOUR.
MY MAGIC SYMBOLS OF FISH ARE A CONTINUOUS THEME RUNNING THROUGH MY WORKS, THEIR SCALES HAVE BECOME MY SYMBOLIC VOCABULARY, MY MUSICAL NOTES, TONES OF FLUID AND SOFT MOVEMENT, A VISUAL SYNCOPATION BETWEEN COLOUR AND IMAGERY”

FISH ARE LOVE: CARESSING THE SOUL, THE BODY AND THE MIND.
FISH ARE FAITH: THEIR IRIDESCENT COLOURS SWIMMING THROUGH THE EVER-CHANGING TIDES OF LIFE.
FISH ARE HOPE: FLOWING AGAINST THE CURRENTS, IN SEARCH OF BETTER, IN SEARCH OF MORE.
FISH ARE SPERM: FUTURE GENERATIONS, A CONTINUUM, FLEXIBLE, BEAUTIFUL CREATURES RISING FROM THE DEPTH OF THE SOUL.

MY PERSONAL MYTHS EVOLVED FROM THE IMAGINATION OF MY SUBCONSCIOUS. MY WORKS CONTAIN PORTRAITS DEALING WITH RELATIONSHIP, REBIRTH AND METAMORPHOSIS. THESE NARRATIVES ARE A CONTINUOUS INTROSPECTIVE SEARCH FULL OF EXCITING AND REVEALING INSIGHTS WITH ELEMENTS OF MY PERSONAL HERITAGE REFLECTING THE PASSION OF MY SOUL.
