Statement

SUSANNE BELCHER, a native Californian and award-winning semi-abstract mixed media artist, began her art career over twenty years ago painting bold and colorful abstract southwest landscapes.  Although she still considers herself a painter, her ability to combine mixed media with symbolism to express her central ideas is her signature strength.  Her compelling images are distilled through layers of reduction and compilation with paint, photography, collage, transparencies and occasionally writing. 

Susanne enjoys playing with the idea of choices and their consequences – urban sprawl and climate change - its impact on wildlife,  the environment, and the human condition; man in relationship to nature and spirituality, and transitions from darkness into light.  Her creations are intimate and complex, offering the viewer dimensional layers of possibility.  She frequently incorporates her personal shadow with repetitive symbols and photo collage to become both an elemental observer as well as a  participant in her work with an outcome often surreal and mysterious.

Susanne, a former health care professional, has a doctorate in Psychology, is an ardent nature lover, and is an active member of Women Painters West,   Collage Artists of America,  The Fine Arts Club of Pasadena, Valley Watercolor Society, and  Thousand Oaks Art Association.  She has exhibited in Germany, galleries and venues throughout Southern California, and her work  is held in both private and corporate collections throughout the United States and Europe.  She was a founding partner, featured and represented artist of the former Abbot Kinney Art Gallery (Venice, CA). She is co-author of "Looking for 527" (with nature writer, Christine Baleshta), about a Yellowstone wolf killed in the first Montana wolf hunt in 2009 (available on Amazon.com).   More of her artwork can be seen on www.susannebelcherart.com
