Cologne-based artist Susanne Herbold paints intuitively rather than rationally. She begins by choosing her characteristically bold colors, summoning her desire to interpret elements of both nature and her innermost self. She then allows her process to flow organically, uniting her being with the canvas. This ever-growing process results in vibrant works of art that invite the viewer to pause and reflect on life.

Herbold’s artistic inspiration emerged when she was young. At first, she admired other artists, such as Marc Chagall. It was a Chagall that she first replicated for her father, and when she saw the strength and happiness it brought to him and those around her, her love for making art solidified. She was also inspired by photorealistic techniques earlier in her career. Nowadays, she aims to integrate the beauty of nature into her work, manifesting in canvases full of color and life. She currently draws inspiration from the idea of what happens when you pull back the curtain from our increasingly fast-paced world: she seeks to make visible the possibilities that lie in taking a step back.

Herbold also attempts to open her work up to the influence of cultures that are not her own as she examines human activity across different spaces and time periods. Herbold now works as a full-time artist, choosing to always jump at opportunities for the development and ongoing evolution of her art and her process.

Art can be the key to unlocking any door. Let it be the door of perception or the gates to the next levels of consciousness. I invite the viewers of my art to connect to the work in a way that they can still feel it when they close their eyes.

In these times, when nothing seems constant, it is art that offers people a way to broaden their perspective and discover new ways of seeing. However, the viewer must be willing and able to engage with it. As an artist, I am not only excited about the creative process, but also the exchange taking place between the viewer and my work. I am often asked how my paintings are created. Sometimes the process involves pauses, other times I cannot stop working. Each time, however, I am closely connected with what I do and I forget the world around me.

Very often, I begin my abstract paintings with the choice of a color and the desire to express my inner energy and mood. Each color has a different vibrational frequency and a wavelength and energy typical of it. I feel colors and their energy with great intensity and I love to apply them in different ways on the canvas, so that they can communicate my intention. I like to work with pastes, spatulas, brushes, but also with my bare hands.

I have always been fascinated with the limitlessness of art. This applies equally to the expression of the artist and the interpretation of the viewer. The connection with art allows new points of view to emerge and the past to be reflected. My vision is to help people experience this unique limitlessness. For inquiries,
