Artist’s Statement

“I imagine a landscape, or object, and what it would look taken down to its basic components, or molecular level. Everything I paint still has some sort of science to it – whether it is a technique, or the thought of a scientific process that allows the function of that natural element. These dissected thoughts translate into the backgrounds, and sometimes as a main component of my paintings. I find the marriage of science and the beauty of nature most challenging to paint, but also makes for the most interesting pieces. I take more time to complete my paintings, because of autoimmune diseases. Ultimately, put my joys, love, thoughts, pain, and experiences onto my substrates. I always hope the viewer finds awe and sees a hope in all my works.”
-Suzanne Winslow Hellums
