SUSANNE KIRSCH


 

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 always is an important aspect besides the love for details. I am using different materials and my hands excessively in some paintings instead of brushes.

 

I do not paint because I need it, but because it is a matter of particular concern to me. I paint what is developing in the inmost depths of my being, and I want to share that with other people. Painting is an essential asset of mine, without it my life would be - in the truest sense of the word - colorless. Painting completes me. Art represents quality of life, inspiration and provides unique accents for enhancing his consciousness.”
