Susana  Espinoza
About the Artists:

In her work, Susana pushes color pigments to near perfection by relying on her intuitive knowledge of color along with a complex application of mediums and supports.

She describes the outcome as “Floating color”, which is created through tireless experimentation with depth of surface. The colour pigments are suspended in a fluid medium, then meticulously superimposed one layer upon another. The result is gem-like transparency and reflectivity. 

In contrast, Susana also produces a textural series that she describes as “raw and tactile”. The heavy texture in these paintings achieve lightness and depth by the way it is built; opaque versus transparent, static versus floating layers.

Texture is elevated to a third dimension in her latest "construction" series. Susana cuts, colors, weaves and glues aluminium pieces on to her paintings. The suspended texture is then contrasted by a smooth support, which casts shadows and reflections to add to the visual experience.
