Welcome!

Welcome to susi-b-art-folio  a new web presence for Susi B Art. This Blog represents a new beginning; for a new course at Uni, a new blog and a new venture into my studio and my world of studying Arts. I made this blog to showcase my Art journey as well as for introspection, contemplation, and reflection on what i am learning in my Arts Course. I am studying Fine Arts and Visual Culture @ Curtin via OUA and although study is sometimes a challenge, I generally enjoy being involved in some form of study and study of Art at this time in my life…is interesting!
This is one of 2 new blogs for uni. The other one is here Susi B Art. I actually had trouble in the beginning deciding on a ‘theme’ so i have chosen ‘art’ as a broad theme, because art is a big pART of my life!
For more info on Susi B you can find it all here: via Welcome to my flavors.me page! and on my About me page…..
and now for a small peek at one of my favorite artists: Mark Rothko.

Mark Rothko No. 14, 1960

Mark Rothko, (September 25, 1903 – February 25, 1970),
was a Russian born American painter.

He was classified as an abstract expressionist, although he himself rejected this label,
and even resisted classification as an “abstract painter”.

“I’m not an abstractionist. I’m not interested in the relationship of color or form or anything else.
I’m interested only in expressing basic human emotions: tragedy, ecstasy, doom, and so on.”
