ORIENTAL COLLAGE TECHNIQUES
 
         


Expressive Brushwork

Artist Statement

Susan was born in Hungary and immigrated to Canada at an early age. In the past 25years she has explored multi media compositions; clay, fiber art, and more recently began gravitating towards watercolor, which has become her medium of choice.

Cheng-Kee Chee has been her source of inspiration. He wrote: “Artists should not be content with the specific subject matter in which they excel….artists should be sensitive to changes around them and, like scientists, be constantly exploring, experimenting, and discovering new ways of expression.”

She is gradually transforming her work from the purist watercolorist, to incorporate the Asian water media traditions. The design elements are becoming increasingly important in her work.

She challenges herself with expressive brushwork that incorporates paper collage and other oriental techniques. Japanese rice paper can be tinted with watercolors, torn into small pieces and used as collage with other materials. Some of these fragments of paper, because of the words and or images on them, are highly charged with social, philosophical, spiritual, historical, and personal energy. All these elements contribute to the power of the works.
