Artist Statement – Suzanne Montresor
My subject matter always comes from my memory of the many organic shapes and forms found in nature. I begin with a vague mental picture of the image I want and then create a detailed sketch that I work until I am satisfied with the design. This is often the longest part of my process and can involve more erasing than drawing. The finished sketch is transferred and rendered in graphite and watercolor wash. Most often the piece evolves as I work, and when finished, might only vaguely resembles the original idea. I try to convey a graceful movement of the images as they move through an imaginary landscape. By the absence of color and the subtle use of shading, I strive to enhance the sculptural aspects of my drawings.
