Suzanne Onodera

Onodera’s work borrows from the landscape painting tradition, while straying from its conventions. Elements hinting at humankind’s impact on nature are always present, lending a mood of unease to the turbulent skies, mountain fires and deep pools she depicts. Her paintings illustrate and yet undermine what is familiar. Mystery is present in her work, as are highly resonant, psychologically deep, themes of decay, loneliness, stewardship and regeneration.
