Australian painter Suzanne Moss is a welcome addition to our artisans’ gallery. The title of this post, painting light, touching space, is also the title of her beautiful book, which is available from her website. Please visit her page to read her insights about her practice and view her ethereal paintings.
Inspired by Fra Angelico and the ancient mariners navigating their way across the oceans,
I find my way when engaged in making.
Creativity for me is the way to listen profoundly,
and live from that.
– Suzanne Moss
Suzanne Moss is an artist who works with light. She is a former Visual Arts Lecturer at the Australian National University School of Art, and has been researching creativity for over 20 years in theory and in practice.
Suzanne’s doctoral research on the painting of light began by asking impossible questions, such as: “What might love look like?” As a result of her questioning, she envisioned inspirational, luminous, natural phenomena.
Her compositions are informed by the symmetry, concentricity and meditative intent of mandalas, as well as that of artists such as Agnes Martin and Josef Albers.
Suzanne has developed a curriculum of courses and coaching which offers a unique blend of mentoring and introspection. She teaches a form of ‘meditative art’ which focuses on mindfulness. The simple visual art practices used in these courses facilitate the creation of beauty – something most people believe they are not capable of expressing. Find more information about these courses on her website.
