Souzan is a painter of lines and color, using them to create characters to reflect her emotions. She creates new images using contrast colors bold lines and forms for her characters in the paintings.
My paintings express my emotions. The characters are warm, sometimes sad, and express powerful thoughts and emotions. The characters fade into the lines, which become stronger. As the lines become stronger, the colors become more powerful.
My inner emotions and feelings let me express myself through the paintings and share my love with everyone else.
The lines in the painting reflects the feeling of dance that asks is life dancing with us or are we dancing with life?
Creating new things with the contrast of colors and forms for the characters in the painting, going from expression to abstract make my dreams come true. Light and sun are important elements as they bring life into the painting emphasizing what life is. Along with light, oceans and blue colors help to show the emotion of the painting, giving a powerful presence a warm one or sometimes the personality of the character has a destroyed look without a face.
They always have a message to tell.
