Suzarita Artist Statement
My grandfather always laughed at me because every time he asked me, “What are you going to do with your life?” I always answered, “I am going to have fun!” The same is true for my artwork. I have fun doing it and I hope you have fun viewing it!
I start my paintings by changing the color of the canvas from white to something more vibrant. I then choose two contrasting colors and work with a limited palette with different variations of the colors chosen and maybe add more color later. I create super thick paint and enjoy a variety of textures within each painting. Sometimes I have to get my fingers dirty, literally with paint, because drawing with my finger is the only way to achieve the outcome I am looking for, which of course is always fun!
