Artist Susanne Butcher works doggedly, persistently and process orientated with her art. She translates her own references and interprets society’s relevant issues into pictorial expression.

She has gradually worked her way into the art scene, through continued and focussed effort. With great patience and respect for producing art that has a personal foundation, she has achieved recognition amongst galleries, colleagues, and customers at home and abroad.

The figurative elements in Susanne Butcher’s work are presented tightly controlled, but with a predilection for allowing the sub-conscience to be the bearing element, that generates a colouristic, expressive and organic representation. In this way, the work is open to the observer’s own interpretations of impression and is an appropriate medium for those that wish to immerse themselves and look introspectively at own life processes.
