soo's studio

Artist Statement:

 

My paintings are a reflection of my life around me as I see and hear it.  Stories are collected in my head of simple smiles, kindness, tragedy to everyday mundane simple reality, and turned it into a poetry of colors on canvas. I love the intense colors and textures achieved from the experience.  The complexity is real but visually, its simple.

The strength and serenity of my work is real but subliminal.  I want the painting to speak to the audience as if on stage and delivering a message to empower and shape us. 

 

So my painting begins with a silence in my head, an empty room, blank canvas, and magic happens.
