Statement

My work is more about exploring things that arouse my curiosity, or making an observation about the world around me, than trying to make a grand statement about something “important.” I am looking to capture that simple, magical moment that can so easily disappear under the pressure of a heavy hand or an analytical mind. With spontaneity, I think there is a resonance and sincerity that comes through, which otherwise gets lost if I’m trying hard to make something “good.”

 

Painting is a slow process for me, because I like to work in many layers, building up, scratching and scraping away, adding more, changing directions, until the canvas shows the history of the process and eventually reaches a satisfying depth and richness. And sculpting—it’s like drawing for me, where a simple curve or gesture can deliver more than a thousand words. There’s that instant when it all clicks, when very few lines come together to express all the information, meaning and emotion. As with painting, the greatest reward is when there is a spontaneous connection between my work and the viewer. 

Suzie Buchholz is a San Francisco Bay Area painter, sculptor and installation artist. She studied painting at Atelier du Soleil in Aix-en-Provence, France, and has a BFA from San Francisco Art Institute. Suzie’s art has been exhibited at galleries in the US and Europe, and has been included in the Zero1 biennial and the permanent collection of Bay Area Discovery Museum.
