Canadian artist SuzieB creates glimpses of the natural world that are vibrant, lively, and candid. Visually, her paintings contain hints of Impressionist allure with a decidedly Modernist bent. Her terrains are rich with color, texture, and all the complexities of light and shadow, and yet are simultaneously contained by a dominant use of line and form. She wields her medium masterfully, so that sometimes the acrylics feel like oil and at other times they employ all the versatility acrylic paint has to offer.
The truly unique aspect of SuzieB’s work is the layers of meaning she infuses into her paintings. Embedded in each image is a self-portrait of the artist, and additionally, she commits to paper the philosophy behind the painting and seals it in a removable tube attached to the back of the canvas. An ambidextrous artist who paints with either hand (and sometimes both at once), SuzieB creates unique, captivating canvases vivid with color and emotive expression, portals to worlds humming with otherworldly energy yet somehow reflective of our own.
