Susan Helbig

My work is based on my love of combining media and is best expressed using a variety of approaches and materials.  Typically, I begin a work by choosing a word or phrase (for example, “map-making”) that intrigues me.  This generates ideas for a combination of interesting images and approaches.  After making order of rather incomplete, chaotic images, I feel the final product will indicate a visual language of suggestion that is shared with the viewer.

Frequently, this process develops into a series of thematic drawings and paintings with a common image or idea, allowing many options and an open-ended body of work, as well as a deeper involvement with my concept.  The most valuable element of this procedure is my original inspiration, but the process itself is also exceptionally rewarding.
