SUSANNE KIRSCH


Biography

 

Fully dedicated to her passion, Susanne Kirsch works as a full-time visual artist in the greater Frankfurt am Main area in Germany. She discovered her passion for abstract painting since the turn of the millennium. Her studio in Rodenbach offers her the space to act out her creativity. She walks through life with eyes wide open, soaks in colors and impressions - preferably from nature, which is one of her greatest inspirations - and incorporates them into her art. 

 

Initially in the autodidactic framework, Susanne begins to develop the basis of an informally oriented style. Her development as an artist leads her to new projects and challenges - in life as well as in art. Her work is characterized by the inspiration of the moment. For Susanne, art is a reflection of human individuality. She loves to see new things emerge and focuses mainly on large-format works. The further development, self-examination and a deep reflection upon life are central aspects in Susanne’s artistic practice. In her multilayered compositions, she skillfully creates the illusion of spatial depth through the interplay of colors. In addition to her intuitive and gestural painting technique, this is a significant characteristic of her painting. Through passion and attention to detail, she captivates the viewer's eye.

 Artist Statement

 

”After giving birth to my first child I started painting – and I have never given it up. Creating art and paintings means "seeing new things arise", "developing of oneself and life and being actively involved" as well as "working up emotions" and relaxation to me.

In the first place, there is the synergy of colors and forms and the pursuit of harmony in colors. The motives arise during the process of creation and a vague idea or current mood. Passion is always an important aspect, besides the love for details. I am using different materials and my hands excessively in some paintings instead of brushes."

 

Painting is an essential part of me; without it my life would be - in the true sense of the word - colorless. Painting completes me, art creates atmosphere and, above all, makes you feel alive." - Susanne Kirsch
