Susana Anaya

During her engineering studies, she attended the “Escuela Nacional de Artes Plásticas” where she developed the skills for drawing, oil painting, watercolors, charcoal, chalk and how to create sculptures with plaster and clay. Furthermore, she encountered a well-known Mexican painter, who became a great role model to her -el maestro Zalathiel Vargas. He taught her for many years the magic of the painting techniques. She learned how to ease her soul so that her spirit was able to flourish in the creation of her signature work. 

 

The work is realized in three-dimensional finish. It consists of impossible volumes created with oil that should have only two dimensions. For her, the proportions are key to the role of her work derived from her love of aesthetics. Most important to her art is the relationship of the parts to each other and the to the whole creation which are in harmony, thus beauty.

 

 

The colors she uses are created mixing pigments and line oil, as the old masters did in former times. They are much brighter and more intense than normal oil colors and some are not available to purchase making them very special to her art. These colors reflect the vivid passion and intense beauty of the inner soul she is exposing and presenting in her work.

 

 

"My art is not constructed or based on an ideology or religion. I would describe my work as a labyrinth that arises by chance. The layering makes it more abundant, unthinkable and sometimes impossible.”

 

"I love the round, the curves... to me it's a representation of wholeness."
