About Susan Richter

Travelling I do like a lot but my favourite journey is my white canvas

I always work from a theme: a landscape, figure, mythological symbols, old cultures. It can, in actuality, be anything at all that evokes familiar feelings and images in me and so serves as a simple resource to inspire my work. I do not in any way attempt to actually represent the original resource-subject. Working from evoked images, I find myself arriving in a no-man's land of meaning, and then gradually the subject finds itself, its own naked and vulnerable life..."like the frail tracks of a bird in the snow..." The painting will finally complete itself and its meaning find itself, in the eyes of the viewer.
