Entry in Border Art Prize 2020

We each have a Spirit Animal that guides or protects us on our journey and whose characteristics we share or embody.  The Spirit Animal helps us remain true to ourselves, our voice and our vision.

My woman’s Spirit Animal is the Owl which does not tolerate illusion or secrets and allows her to become far more observant.  The Owl gives her “new” eyes with which to see, she looks into your soul and sees the real you.

This contemporary piece was created using myriad layers of oil paint to create the depth that I required in the background and the piece is filled with symbolism and meaning.  

With her Spirit Animal on her shoulder their eyes look straight at you, you cannot hide from their gaze.

Bianchi on One

Since the arrival of abstract art, the term figurative has been used to refer to any form of modern art that retains references to the real world and has been particularly used to refer to artists that retain aspects of the real world as their subject matter. Susanne enjoys using the human figure and placing it in its own natural space.
When painting in the Contemporary Figurative style her aim is to encourage the viewer establish their own understanding of her work, to look at the world in a way that they may not normally see it and to let their imagination run wild.
One of her inspirations is Picasso, who after about 1920, is the great exemplar of modern figurative painting.
