"I am a Californian born, East Coast based painter who uses the physicality of paint and gestural forms to create the landscape abstracted.
These large-scale oil paintings depict a mood of unrest in the turbulent skies, mountain fires and deep azure pools, illustrating humankind’s connection to place and nature, and in turn, our devastating impact on nature due to climate change.
In doing so, the work addresses highly resonant themes of decay, loneliness, stewardship and regeneration, yet always present in the work is the beautiful, the mysterious and the ambiguous."
-Suzanne Onodera, December 2020
“(Suzanne’s) abstracted landscapes radiate with energy and movement as she captures stroke by stroke the beauty of nature. Onodera is a brilliant colorist, mapping shadow and light in tones that when laid against each other have the power to create a harmonic chord, pulsing from the surface of the canvas. Gesture is essential in Onodera’s work – you can sense the movement of the artist’s hand in every element. She owes her influences as much to Joan Mitchell as to the tonalist landscape artists of earlier centuries.” - Donna Seager, Seager Gray Gallery
