Painting Style

Susanne Kurwig is an abstract, expressionist painter.

Luminous colors, floral & organic shapes find their place in your pictures as impressions from nature, your inner world.

Colorful contrasts and strong rhythms float  together in an imaginative harmony. The joie de vivre of your work takes the viewer with it, creating emotional touches of liveliness.

Through the use of different painting media such as acrylic, oil pastel, ink, pen, color spray, structure gel and more, each work of art tells its story. 

From a place of intuition, combined with knowledge of colors and materials, she builds up the picture layer by layer and with expressive details.
