“To me painting is a continuous spontaneous journey of exploration, experiences and emotions. I enjoy the whole process of painting and experimenting. My intention is to capture a moment, a feeling, and a sense of presence and to encourage and inspire the viewer to broaden their own perception and possibilities. It is neither precious nor serious, but a snapshot in time.
The canvas surface may express a sense of urgency, awkwardness and minimalism but over time it reveals a balance. Using a mixed medium has allowed me to create and achieve interesting and unpredictable affects, textures and surfaces.
I let the paint surface dictate and control, which brings a spontaneous reaction, and a kind of ‘truth or dare’ situation with a touch of the unexpected. I like to focus on the expression of line, brush stroke and texture. Each new painting reinvents and reveals itself through the adding and subtracting to the surface, in a way, its finding myself in that moment in time.” – Suzanna Lang.
