Susan’s works are contemporary and figurative with subtle abstract elements and surprises, underpinned by her concern for the environment, sustainable living and the value of a more simple life.
Acrylic and oil, patterned, layered and rubbed back allowing the underlying to emerge, achieving an organic quality, echoing transience, evoking nostalgia and inviting appreciation for the often taken for granted.
Exhibited in solo and selected shows since 1998 and since 2012 internationally, including the New York Chelsea International Art Competition, in Hong Kong, Istanbul, California and Singapore and most recently the Rise Art Prize ‘Global Artist of the Year’ award in London.
In 2016 by invitation Susan was artist-in residence at One & Only Reethi Rah, Maldives. Creating from her Noosa Heads studio Susan’s works are exhibited, selected and collected nationally and internationally.
"I love Susan Schmidt’s use of colour, form, line and pattern in these works. The combination of precision, depth and richness of these elements to create images that visually verge on abstraction, but simultaneously tap into a shared emotional nostalgia for all the summers past conflated with hope for all of those to come."
