Susan Marx

My paintings are conversations between my eyes, my head, my heart, my gut, and the canvas in front of me. This is true whether I am painting from my imagination or in front of nature. In both scenarios, nature is my frame of reference. I paint what nature leaves with me. 

My work is intuitive. I let the process guide and inform me. I load up my palette and pick up a brush, holding it as a conductor would hold his baton and begin. It is a constant back-and-forth between paint and canvas, as I work quickly, using my emotions rather than an intellectually thought out process. I cannot get the colors down fast enough, often painting wet-on-wet until, suddenly, I need air. I stop and step back to look at my canvas one last time. The painting is done. 

I like to entice and engage my viewers, drawing them into a fresh and beautiful world. I hope my artwork will lead people to notice the beauty in nature: a healing beauty. Someone once said I work to the muse of Monet, Van Gogh and Joan Mitchell; I was thrilled.  They helped guide me in the journey to become the artist I am today.
