Here is a somewhat more evocative collection of paintings. They are emotionally charged and rooted in story-telling that connects our personal narratives with universal themes. Some are part of established series, some are just developing.
“Suzanne Paddock’s visceral paintings are picture of the interplay between life and death, material and spirit, the pulsing interplay of spirit, matter, and mind; reverence, attachment, horror, recognition. Creatures of the wing perch, and shelters of permanence sail around as pain and love and sorrow and loss occupy the scene. The rounds of life and its complicated dimensions are the dynamic forces that fearsomely and touchingly occupy private scenes of death. Paddock has mastered her medium, the paintings as whole canvases bring us into the space of love and loss unveiled. Unsettling, demanding, and tender, the images bring eternities before us.” ~ Doris McCabe
