Susan Swartz, A Personal Path

Kulturfenster Summer 2014

Kulturfenster Summer 2014

The American artist Susan Swartz was invited to a present a selection of her works for the first time in Austria in Salzburg. A Personal Path, which is the apt title of the exhibition, premiering on May 30 at the newly renovated Collegiate Church, describes the personal journey on which the artist is. In the course of her artistic career she has found in abstract painting her artistic position. Her work is at its core an illustration of her bright personal experience, her [Uberseugungen] and interpretations. For Swartz nature in its beauty is both exciting and challenging to capture and portray. Her deep faith in God, the creator of the universe, nature and people gives her strength for the daily work. So she says, “If God is the creator, I need not do anything more than interpret.

Salzburg -- Thursday night in the Salzburg University Church: Just as voices are amplified in this space, so the strength of the paintings of U.S. art activ- ist Susan Swartz is magnified drastically. What could be labeled as contrasting styles, become one – abstract paintings combined with Baroque architecture. These colorful compositions inspired by nature take on the massive construction of the church brilliantly. In addition, the art emphasizes detail in Fischer von Erlach’s architecture - such as the impact of the wall socket, so easily absorbing these large-scale images as a collection.

"I am showing a mixture of recent and older work. As a landscape artist, I am always seeing new ways to represent light, color, heat, form, patterns. My lifetime of work has been a progressive commentary on the natural world — hoping to inspire people to experience its wonder and to share in our collective responsibility of intelligent stewardship. While my recent work is completely abstract, it is still grounded in nature. Over the past two years I have been working on several series: Landscape of Resonances, Creation and Nature's Mirage."

Paintings from each series will be in The Winter Art Salon.
