Suzanne Onodera


“This work borrows from the landscape painting tradition, yet it is devoid of any human presence. Elements hint at humankind’s impact on nature, creating a mood of unease in the turbulent skies, mountain fires and deep azure pools within the work.

Mysterious and ambiguous yet exalted, these paintings depict highly resonant, psychologically deep themes of decay, loneliness, stewardship and regeneration.” - Suzanne Onodera, September 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
